Abstract

Data on sediment yields, percentages of peak storm runoff and fern undergrowth and litter cover extent in two basins, one a control from which people have been excluded since 1997, and the other where normal harvesting practices are permitted, were used to evaluate how human activity affects sediment discharge. The 4-year period of control practice was to short to affect the relationship between peak rainfall and peak storm runoff and the fern and litter covers and their amounts, but long enough to contribute to the reductions in sediment discharge in the control basin by decreasing erodibility
