Hi folks,

I'm on my second year of a project involving tree and shrub 
transpiration in a wetland forest in Kentucky.  Since it's a wetland 
forest, transpiration is rarely affected by water availability and is 
mostly driven by vapor pressure deficit (vpd).  I've been regressing 
daily transpiration vs. vpd, and it's usually a good fit.  However, I 
suspect their are some time lags, namely that transpiration may be 
responding to vpd not just from the current day but also previous 

I've done a quick pass through various R packages, and there are 
several that model time lags.  Can anyone make some recommendations 
for a beginner?  Thanks!
