    Ramat Hanadiv works hard to make its services accessible to people with disabilities in order to afford them a visiting experience that meets their unique requirements.

    In accordance with the law, our accessibility manager, Tami Zigler, is available. If you encounter unique accessibility requests you’re welcome to contact us in one of the following ways:

    Telephone: 04-6298127 Cellphone: 052-6901144 Fax: 04-6399117

    or Email: To Tami

     

    Disabled parking:

    Designated disabled parking bays may be found in the main and secondary parking lots.

    Disabled restrooms:

    Every facility that offers restrooms also offers designated disabled restrooms.

    Aids for the hearing impaired:

    Devices for the hearing impaired are available in the InfoShop, classrooms, movie theater and auditorium and on training tours. For your convenience, contact us and let us know in advance about your visit in order to receive fast, easy service.

    Telephone: 04-6298111 ext. 4.

    Website accessibility:

    Ramat Hanadiv invests effort and resources to make the organization’s website accessible so that disabled people will also be able to enjoy it.

    Restrictions to accessibility:

    As a general rule, all of the website’s pages were built to meet level AA conformance to web content accessibility. Nevertheless, despite our efforts to make all of the website’s pages accessible, it is possible that some parts of the site are still inaccessible. We note that a number of pages contain external components that are beyond our control and inaccessible. Therefore, the following pages do not meet the accessibility standard:

Estimating the Water Use of a Sclerophyllous Species under an East-Mediterranean Climate

Estimating the Water Use of a Sclerophyllous Species under an East-Mediterranean Climate
Gabriel Schiller, Eugene D. Ungar, and Yehezkel Cohen  
Forest Ecology and Management, vol. 170, nos. 1-3 (October 2002), pp. 117-126 [full text]
 
Abstract (p. 117)
 
 
Water use by vegetation is the most important parameter which is directly related to plant anatomical and 
eco-physiological characters, and to soil-bedrock water availability. This basic parameter is important in decision making, planning and management of the open areas under semiarid climatic conditions like those of Israel. Attempts were made to quantify the water use by Phillyrea latifolia L. by means of the heat pulse method. This method provides continuous monitoring of the convective heat pulse velocity (HPV) in the trunk xylem, thus facilitating the quantification of the transpiration flux per tree. The daily and annual water use by this species was estimated by extrapolations from the single-tree transpiration rates, based on the relationship between the leaf area of the measured trees and the entire area. 
 
The lithological properties of the bedrock formations in each of the research sites caused significant differences between sites in the average daily transpiration rate and, hence, in the total water use by the Phillyrea latifolia scrub formation. The daily transpiration, averaged over a year, ranged between 4.00 and 8.15 l. day per tree, and the estimated annual water use ranged between 179.4 and 365.5 mm, i.e., between 30 and 61% of the annual rainfall in the winter preceding the measurements in 1993.
