dc.description.abstract The study of landscape gas exchange in arid and semi-arid regions is less common than those of more mesic environments, despite their large geographical extent, their importance to regional climate, their socioeconomic values and the carbon and water balances of such regions. In this study we used eddy covariance measurements to examine net ecosystem exchange and water fluxes of a landscape dominated by a N-fixing tree (Acacia aneura; Mulga) as a function of soil moisture content, vapour pressure deficit, leaf area index and pulses of rain. Seasonal budgets of carbon and water, ecosystem-scale water-use-efficiency (the ratio of net ecosystem exchange to evapotranspiration) and inherent water-use-efficiency (ecosystem water-use-efficiency ? vapour pressure deficit) were also examined. Across the 12 month study, the landscape was a net sink for carbon, despite prolonged periods of zero rain. en_US
