Linking plant morphological traits to uprooting resistance in eroded marly lands (Southern Alps, France)

Abstract

In marly catchments of the French Southern Alps, soils are subjected to harsh water erosion that can result in concentrated flows uprooting small plants. Evaluating and predicting plant resistance to uprooting from simple plant traits is therefore highly important so that the most efficient plant strategy for future restoration of eroded slopes can be… (More)
