Abstract

The aim was to determine whether these morphological parameters are important predictors of soil detachment and should therefore be included in erosion models or whether, as is the case in many models, percentage canopy and canopy height alone are adequate to represent the effects of vegetation. Since the role of canopy cover and canopy height is well recognized in erosion models, the experimental programme was designed within a relatively narrow range of values for these parameters so that their effects would not outweigh those of the leaf morphology
