Abstract

Vegetation change, from grassland to shrubland, has occurred over much of the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Deserts during the past century. The effect of this vegetation change on interrill runoff and erosion was examined by conducting rainfall-simulation experiments on large runoff plots on contemporary grassland and shrubland hillslopes. The environmental change that has led to the vegetation change has been relatively minor, but its geomorphic impact has been substantial
