Expedition 16: Wertvolles Mosaik
The diversity of forms in the glacier forefield creates a wide variety of habitats in the smallest space. In it, a species-rich flora develops.
Pohlia mosses form green carpets in the Sander. They are a "speciality" of alpine alluvial plains, because they use the suspended matter from the glacier stream as nutrients. The mosses therefore grow in the areas of the glacier forefield, which are occasionally flooded by the stream.
In the audio, Mary Leibundgut tells you more about this fascinating plant mosaic. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.
Continue ahead, elevated towards the stream.
