In this paper we report tardigrades collected from cryptogams
in Lesotho and KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Thanks also are given to the cryptogam
staff of the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra, in particular to Heino Lepp and Judith Curnow, to Greg Chapple and the staff of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney for supplying Herbarium records, and to David Eldridge for permission to quote from his Cocoparra observations.

species diversity and soil fertility in the Tengger Desert, Northern China.
In contrast, a cryptogam
indicator associated with black spruce communities that is being developed and tested brings the needed ability to determine the hydrophytic portions of both the vascular and cryptogam
aspects of the community.

* Earlier classifications systems included cyanobacteria, algae, lichens, and bryophytes in the plant kingdom as cryptogams
, together with the pteridophytes.
Frequencies of occurrence of perennial grass, cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum), cryptogam
crust, and native forbs also were measured by systematically placing 10, 1-[m.sup.2] frames along the N-S and E-W axes of each circular plot.
Yet mosses do not make up the bulk of the material, and some so-called cryptogamic crusts do not contain any organism that would fit under the name cryptogam
Selecting and Testing Cryptogam
Species for Use in Wetland Delineation in Alaska.
The least developed form of humus is the so-called cryptogam
crust, dominated by cyanobacteria and fungi, whether lichenized or not, so that the only true cryptogams
are a few bryophytes.
Eldridge and Kinnell (1997) observed that weighting cryptogam
cover with respect to its closeness to the downstream boundary improved the relationship between cryptogam
cover and erosion.
