Abstract

This study focuses on the role of vegetation in streambank retreat and deposition along incised and variably entrenched streams during a drought. The study also investigates vegetation as associated with different bank profiles and the amount of bank change which takes place at various heights on the bank. Because the study was conducted during the sixth year of drought, fluvial erosion was atypical and is specifically identified in the text where it occurred
