Collates all the research in erosion-induced loss in soil productivity that the authors have been able to find. Some 195 items of research are categorised according to geographical area, soil type, crop, research method and parameters studied. Analyses of research activity indicate that Aridisols and Oxisols are under-represented and good quantitative information is lacking on the other major soil types. Experiments which monitor nutrient losses and soil properties have problems: it might be more realistic and useful to concentrate on the remaining soil rather than the removed soil.
