Abstract

Plant species diversity plant cover and plant density are reported for three dunes situated across a climatic gradient in the Namib Desert. Substrate penetrability, dune slope and dune aspect, parameters of importance to the plant community characteristics, are also reported. The central site, Bushman's Circle, had the greatest plant species diversity wlth four perennial species having more than 0.5% crown cover values. The eastern site, Far East, had two such species, while Nara Valley, the western site, had one.
