Description:

Vegetation of channels of the northeastern Okavango Delta.

Summary / Notes:

There are two channel classifications: Within-channel assemblages appeared to be related to the introduction of sediments from source areas and to differences in channel dimensions (particularly water depth) and current velocity. Channel margin assemblages appeared to be related to seasonal and longer-term water level fluctuations, as well as to the extent in which water, introduced from either the catchment or from local rainfall, contributed to the water budget.
