Document title

A hierarchical view of the interactions of runoff and infiltration with vegetation and microtopography in semiarid shrublands

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Measurements of runoff and infiltration were made at 5 spatial scales, terracette, hummock, part-slope, slope and catchment, on a shrubland and an open forest site. The study was aimed at understanding the relationships between runoff production, vegetation patterns and microtopography at different spatial scales within a sparsely vegetated, semiarid area. The field evidence is discussed within the context of hierarchy theory, and the implications for management of these shrublands are related to maintaining both the vegetation mosaic and runoff on these slopes
