Abstract

To characterise the spatial variability of the soil surface features and their role in the hydrodynamics of the vegetation stripes, the AA. first described them along a transect perpendicular to the main axis of a stripe together with the detailed topography. The study was conducted in the Mapimi Biosphere Reserve (Chihuahuan desert, Mexico). The transect crossed a bare zone and the pioneer, central and senescence zones of a stripe. Rainfall simulations were then used to analyse the relationship between these soil surface features and infiltration and runoff
