Effect of forest cover on the stream flow from small watersheds


, : Effect of forest cover on the stream flow from small watersheds. Journal of Soil and Water Conservation 49(4): 382-386

Runoff and rainfall were studied during 1980-88 in relation to forest cover in 3 small experimental watersheds near Ljubovija in western Serbia. The runoff regime was balanced in the watershed with 70% forest cover, but was unbalanced in the watersheds with 39.5 and 48.5% forest cover.
