Abstract

As part of a vegetation restoration project, the AA. conducted research aiming to understand the relationship between vegetation pattern and soil water dynamics. The goal was to find vegetation types appropriate for the loess plateau with scarce water ressources. In 1986, 15 plots of land were planted with 5 vegetation types : pine woodland, shrubland, sloping cropland, alfalfa and semi-natural grassland. Soil water content, runoff, soil erosion were measured for each plot and environmental variables were recorded simultaneously. Discussion of the results
