Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
Maimai was set‐up originally by the NZ Forest Service with funding coming from the Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR). In 1992, Crown Research Institutes were created from previous government‐owned bodies, and thereafter Landcare Research funded the ongoing operations at Maimai. The development of the Phase 2 trenched slope was funded by New Zealand's National Institute for Water and Atmosphere Research and Landcare Research. Grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation in the United States funded much of the other Phase 2 work including M8 intercomparisons with U.S.‐based watersheds at Sleepers River, Vermont and Panola Mountain, Georgia (not described here). AGU Horton Research Grants to McDonnell, McGlynn and Gabrielli helped fund their PhD study at Maimai. Phase 3 work was funded mostly by the Canadian NSERC Discovery Grant program.
