Vegetation succession in floodplain flats : inventarisation and modelling of measured data and expert judgement

B.S.J. Nijhof

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    Literature study and expert judgement are used to develop succession schemes per vegetation structure type of the Dutch floodplain flats. The occurrence of a vegetation type is said to be mainly related to flooding duration and frequency. The third factor taken into account is the management, for example mowing or grazing. Per vegetation structure type the relation between vegetation types and time span needed for developing from one into another is given.
