Trees and Drought (IMAGE) University at Buffalo Caption Scientists employed computer modeling to study how conifers tap into water sources during drought. As part of the research, the team compared the behavior of modeled trees to that of real trees at the Los Alamos Survival-Mortality experiment site (pictured), where trees underwent drought and heat treatments.
