In a deciduous larch forest in eastern Siberia, the mean and standard deviation of the total evapotranspiration (E) during May to September (day of year (DOY)=121-274) for 2003-2006 were 181.5 and 26.4mm, respectively. The interannual variation (IAV) in the total E was caused by the IAV in E for the canopy-foliated period (DOY=164-253), not by the IAV in the dates of leaf expansion and leaf fall. For the years with higher total E, E in the canopy-foliated period was consistently higher, which corresponded to the higher soil water content in these years.
