The AA. analyzed runoff and sediment yield from land under various traditional and current land uses in Mediterranean mountain areas, using long-term data from an experimental station in the Aísa Valley, Central Spanish Pyrenees. Monitoring at this station has provided 20 years of data that can help explain the hydrological and geomorphological changes that have been observed at larger spatial scales, and also the changes that have occurred to some of the most characteristic landscapes of the Mediterranean middle mountains. The results obtained are consistent with other studies in the Mediterranean region, and confirm the strong influence of land use changes (generalized farmland abandonment and a decrease in livestock pressure) on runoff generation and sediment yield
