In a watershed forests are an important influence on how water is stored and moved throughout the ecosystem. Being a primary consumer of water, forest vegetation has an effect on the balance of water resources available for streamflow. Furthermore, water is returned to the atmosphere by means of evaporation from water stored in the forest canopy and floor, soil surface and water bodies such as wetlands, as well as from plant transpiration that provides a pathway for groundwater to reach the atmosphere.
