Sap flow was measured in August 1993 in 7 trees of Dryobalanops aromatica ranging in position from the understorey to emergents, using the heat pulse velocity technique. Daytime flow was depressed by rainfall, which presumably reduced transpiration by wetting leaf surfaces. Nevertheless, mean daytime flow stabilized after five or fewer days of measurement, so water use can be quickly assessed for a particular season.
