Soils play key roles in forest biogeochemical cycles; erosion causes degradation through siltation of watersheds, reduced soil stability, and reduced fertility (Islam et al. 2001, Hartanto et al. 2003, Cotler and Ortega-Larrocea 2006, Neary et al. 2009), and increased rates of rainfall run-off (Lal 1992).
