Potential elementary ecotone structures: basic data for a synoptic analysis of backwater-system processes (Module 3, ÖDM-MaB)
Dokulil, M. T.; Janauer, G. A.; Kum, G.
The task of Module 3 in the MaB-project ÖDM (Ecotones Danube and March) is the exploration of ecotones in oxbow lakes, and between oxbow lakes and adjacent semi-terrestrial systems. Studies focus on phytoplankton, phytobenthos and macrophytes. Hydrology, sediment composition and water chemistry provide fundamental data for understanding the distribution of the plants. The results will be used for a synoptic analysis of system processes in backwaters.
