Soil Microstructrure as an Under-Explored Feature of Biological Soil Crust Hydyrological Properties: Case Study from the NW Negev Desert
Biological soil crusts (BSCs) can play an important role in hydrological cycles, especially in dryland ecosystems where the availability of water is limited. Many factors influence the hydrological behavior of BSCs, one of which is the microstructure.
