Trade-off between vegetation type, soil erosion control and surface water in global semi-arid regions: A meta-analysis

Gao-Lin Wu, Yi-Fan Liu, Zeng Cui, Yu Liu, Zhi-Hua Shi, Rui Yin & Paul Kardol
Soil erosion control and water resource protection can closely interact during restoration of terrestrial ecosystems. In semi‐arid ecosystems, an urgent issue is how vegetation restoration can achieve the goal of soil erosion mitigation and water conservation, which in turn, feeds back to ecosystem functioning. We reviewed 78 articles from 22 countries in semi‐arid areas to evaluate the effects of vegetation type (i.e. forest, grassland and scrubland) on runoff and sediment yields across different environmental conditions...
