Abstract

Influences of vegetation on shallow (< 1 m) soil slip formation through modification of soil water is investigated on hillslides covered by verdant chaparral (dense shrubland), and burned vegetation in the Transverse Ranges of California. The results contradict the common assumption that depletion of soil water by vegetation would result in slower saturation rates and hence greater resistance of a soil mass to slippage
