Hysteresis loops in the evapotranspiration in a pasture area in south Brazil
Keywords:Evapotranspiration, Hysteresis, Environmental variables
AbstractOne of the main components of water and energy balance in terrestrial ecosystems, the evapotranspiration (ET), was estimated using the eddy covariance technique. To better understand these energy transfer processes it is necessary to know how the ET responds to different meteorological variables. The main objective of this work is to investigate the hysteresis response of ET to environmental variables including air temperature (Temp), vapor pressure deficit (DPV) and net radiation (Rn) at a diel timescale for a pasture area in southern Brazil. ET presents hysteresis with DPV and Temp, responding more strongly to the vapor pressure deficit.

Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The Ciência e Natura journal is committed to ensuring ethics in publication and quality of articles.
Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.
Authors: Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the experiments. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review Articles should also be objective, comprehensive, and accurate accounts of the state of the art. The Authors should ensure that their work is entirely original works, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this has been appropriately acknowledged. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding Author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all Co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.
Editors: Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. An Editor must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the Author.

Reviewers: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that Authors can use them for improving the paper.
