Abstract
    Concentrated flow erosion resistance of herbaceous vegetation is linked to vegetation-level root length density (RLD). However, RLD measurements involve destructive and time-consuming sampling. Since plant species richness, functional diversity and functional composition are expected to affect RLD through either non-additive diversity effects or biomass ratio effects, we evaluated whether these measures can be used as a proxy for RLD in levee grassland communities.
