Algal crust formation in the inland dune area, Laarder Wasmeer, the Netherlands

  title={Algal crust formation in the inland dune area, Laarder Wasmeer, the Netherlands},
  author={J. L. A. Pluis},
The aim of this study is to acquire insight in the initial vegetation development on active drifting sands in relation to geomorphological processes. For this purpose the algal vegetation and surface dynamics were monitored on a sand hill with active drifting sand, and on a bare slope within a terrain covered with Polytrichum piliferum located in the Laarder Wasmeer (The Netherlands). There is a successional development from an algal community dominated by the cyanobacterium Oscillatoria spp… CONTINUE READING
