- ... Soil is the basis for vegetation growth, and vegetation in turn improves soil quality. Understanding the relationships between soil and vegetation characteristics is needed to rehabilitate degraded land and implement sustainable land use practices. In particular, it is important to uncover the relationship between natural vegetation restoration and key soil parameters for the improvement of restor ...

- ... Soil water is a key variable for re-vegetation and environmental restoration in water-limited terrestrial ecosystems such as the Chinese Loess Plateau. Large land restoration projects (e.g., the “Grain for Green” launched in 1999 and the “Gully Land Consolidation” launched in 2011) had substantial impacts on the storage, distribution, and spatial patterns of soil water, and these factors remain po ...
