Abstract

The morphology, and architecture of the tussocks of alpha grass as well as its associated micro topography have been described in several sites on the south versant of the Filabres Range, in southern Spain. The results show the formation of micro topographic mounds upslope of the tussocks which are interpreted as deposition bodies originating from the interception of downslope sediment movement by the vegetated patches. A simple simulation model has been built from the field observations
