Brief description Managing Australia's variable water resources is imperative. When the timing of rain shifts, with decreases in spring and increases in autumn, is water use in plants similar to plants which experience only a spring drought? Understanding plant water use as the timing of rain shifts will help us manage Australia's water more effectively.
