Abstract

In this study, the influence of 3 representative species of the Mediterranean matorral on slope microtopography is determined and the processes that take part in the development of microtopographic structures beneath the plant canopy are identified. The influence of slope gradient, plant species and plant parameters on the shape and height of microtopographic studies is also studied. Main processes were identified as affecting mound development in the studied field site : sedimentation, differential interrill erosion, differential splash erosion and bioturbation. Plant species interact in different ways with these processes
