Function to compute water requirement status for different species on the basis of species minimum and maximum precipitation characteristics.
Data frame of climate data, including temperature, precipitation, water year, and dates
Data frame of species temperature and precipitation characteristic data
Water requirement status defined per species as insufficient (annual precipitation < species precip min), adequate (annual precipitation between species precip min and max), and oversaturated (annual precipitation > species precip max). Plant characteristic information from the USDA (establish minimum and maximum tolerable precipitation levels per species in mm).
Function can be used to assess how well the water requirements of regional species are being met, and the status can serve as a flag to any potential water use issues for maintaining species health and biodiversity.
Dataframe of annual precipitation levels (mm) and species annual water requirement status
