ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2005.12.017||Abstract:||The role of common roadside fern (Dicranopteris curranii) on the recovery of logging roads in headwater catchments of Peninsular Malaysia was examined. Hortonian overland flow from a 51.5 m road section was monitored during the 1-year study period along with sporadic measurements of sediment export before and during fern growth. Furthermore, the event-based influence of fern cover on rainfall input and flux of DOC, K, Mg, and Ca were estimated using bulk rainfall collectors (176 cm2) and compared with those in the adjacent forest canopy for six storms. Air temperatures measured beneath fern cover and forest canopy were compared with those on the open road. Road-generated runoff was reduced by 4.8 mm after fern growth during storms with||Source Title:||Forest Ecology and Management||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/88784||ISSN:||03781127||DOI:||10.1016/j.foreco.2005.12.017|
