Description :
In this paper, the AA. report results from a model developed to calculate evaporation changes and predict forest distribution in terms of slope inclination and aspect. Field records of forest distribution and soil moisture variability under different topographical situation were employed to test the model simulation. The AA. explain how topography controls soil water supply and, subsequently, the vegetation patterns, using a case study in southeastern Inner Mongolia.
