Above-ground earthworm casts affect water runoff and soil erosion in Northern Vietnam


The AA. investigated the effects of Amynthas khami, an anecic species producing above-ground casts of prominent size, on water infiltration and soil detachment along a land-use intensification gradient. Two scales of studies were considered : at the structure scale (cm2), a water runoff simulation was used to differentiate the effects of casts, free biogenic aggregates that previously belong to casts, and free physicogenic aggregates; at the station levels, 1-m2 plots were used to determine runoff and soil detachment rates during the rainy season in 2005. Discussion of the results
