oa Madoqua - Vegetation of the lower Kuiseb River

Volume 11, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1011-5498



The withdrawal of water from the lower Kuiseb River for mining and industrial purposes may influence the vegetation along the river. The maintenance of this vegetation is not only essential to the Kuiseb River ecosystem as a whole, but the vegetation acts as a barrier checking the northwards movement of the Namib dune-sea. Physiognomic-structural areas were distinguished on aerial photographs and these areas were investigated in the field for homogeneity and woody species composition.
