Microbiotic Soil Crusts: A Review of their Roles in Soil and Ecological Processes in the Rangelands of Australia
In this review we discuss the characteristics and distribution of microbiotic crusts in the rangelands of Australia, their roles in soil and ecological processes and the impacts of fire and grazing. Finally we propose a new system for classifying crusts into functional groups and identify areas requiring further investigation.
