Description "The aim of the present study was to investigate the suitability of Acacia senegal
stands for agroforestry with regard to soil moisture depletion and physiological traits.
In the first set of experiments, the effect of tree size on soil water depletion and on
such tree characteristics as photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, leaf water potential,
relative humidity and inter-cellular CO2 concentration was examined. The
physiological behavior of A. senegal was assessed to elucidate its drought adaptation
mechanisms. In the second set of experiments the effect of the density of a planted A.
senegal stand on two traditional food and cash crops, sorghum and karkadeh, was
evaluated to determine the interaction between trees and field crops, using gum and
agricultural crop yields and physiological characteristics as criteria".
