Abstract/Contents:Discusses the natural process of hydraulic lift, its effect on surrounding plants and the impact on ecosystems. Hydraulic lift is a process carried out by certain plant species (e.g. sagebrush and sugar maples) by which they draw water deep from within the soil and exude it through their shallow roots thereby watering the soil at that level. This in return provides water for surrounding plants which have a shallow root system enabling them to survive times of drought. Attention is given to studies carried out by Dr. Jim Richards which focused upon the hydraulic potential of sugar maples in the state of New York and its impact on surrounding plant species.
