This work evaluated rainfall interception and distribution patterns of gross precipitation around the canopy of a single evergreen tree Ficus benjamina (L.) in Queretaro City, Mexico. Nineteen individual storms occurring from July to October, 2005, were analyzed. The study showed a screen effect of the tree crown on gross precipitation. The authors found that if this is not accounted for in study designs, it will lead to underestimations of interception losses.
