Distribution of Flowering Plants and Cyanobacteria in Relation to Soil Characters in Bahariya Oasis, Egypt

I.B. M. Ibraheem and E. A. Al-Sherif

Abstract:
Baharia Oasis in one of the famous Oasses in western desert of Egypt. This study dealt with the distribution of flowering plants and cyanobacteria in the Oasis in relation to each other and to physicochemical characters of soil. Fifty six species of flowering plants and 29 cyanobacterial species were identified in seven different habitats. The data revealed that the flowering plants and algal taxa were controlled by the edaphic factors and physico-chemical characters of the soil. In the present study, both positive and negative correlations between flowering plants and cyanobacterial taxa were obtained confirming the controversial effect of cyanobacterial crust on vascular plants.
