AbstractAfforestation brings lots of water-related benefits, including reducing soil erosion and improving water conservation, simultaneously; it is considered to be a land use activity, which threatens water resources security. Characterizing the response of soil moisture to revegetation is important for the sustainability of water and plants on the Loess Plateau of China. In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis of 1,262 observations from 66 published studies to evaluate the effect of land use on the soil moisture of forest, shrubland, and grassland regions at a depth of 5 m in different ecological zones of the Loess Plateau. The results indicated that (a) Soil moisture content (SMC) decreased after land use conversion in all three ecological zones and was inconsistent among different soil layers. (b) Except for other grassland species, changes in the response size for soil moisture were not significant among any tree species, including Pinus tabuliformis, Robinia pseudoacacia, other forest species, Caragana korshinskii, other shrubland species, and Medicago sativa. (c) Soil moisture changes varied with different restoration types and ages. (d) The change in response to precipitation was not significant, whereas the change in response to temperature was significant. In addition, the responses of the initial soil moisture levels exhibited a negative correlation with revegetation. These results indicate that it is vital for scientific afforestation in the Loess Plateau to complement local climate conditions and soil properties.
