    Abstract

    Cloud immersion affects the water budget of fog-affected forests not only by introducing an additional source of water (via cloud water interception by the canopy), but also by suppressing plant transpiration. The latter effect is often overlooked and not routinely quantified, restricting a complete understanding of the net hydrological effect of cloud immersion and the possible consequences of projected reductions in cloud immersion under drier and warmer climates in tropical montane regions in the coming decades. This paper describes an approach to quantify the suppression of stand-level tree transpiration (E
