Soil erosion and vegetation cover are negatively related in semiarid slopes due to the influence of erosion on important soil surface properties for plant establishment and development, but also because the removal of seeds and plants. Previous published work concluded that seed mass is the main factor explaining the seed susceptibility to removal by soil erosion but that this susceptibility can be modified by the presence of seed appendages (hairs, wings, awns) and the ability of seeds to… CONTINUE READING
