  • Distribution map of the ring-shaped plaja vegetation near Abu Mukhaiyat, central Marmarica Plateau, with zonal arrangement of vegetation units (ca. 61km SSE of Mersa Matruh; map with idealised contour lines, for location and co-ordinates compare fig. 1, according to Bornkamm & Kehl, 1989, the area under research is located between the 'full desert' and 'extreme desert I', cf. "Ökologische Wüstentypen").

  • Table:
    Zonal arrangement of vegetation units, and species forming the units of the plaja near Abu Mukhaiyat, center of the Marmarica Plateau, ca. 61km S of the coast near Mersa Matruh. Frequency and coverage according to Braun-Blanquet.

  • Fig. 2:
    Plaja soil distribution map of a small depression near Abu Mukhaiyat, central Marmarica Plateau, partly with zonal arrangement of soil units
    (ca. 61km SSE of Mersa Matruh; map with idealised contour lines, soils developed from miocene limestone of the marmarican formation).
