Abstract: 

Vegetation and environmental data were collected during the summers 1996-1999 along two lateral-transects and two longitudinal-transects of the Rotmoos valley glacierforeland Successional pattern of the vegetation on the area exposed by glacial retreat was recorded by studying discontinuous plots. All plots have a size of 1 m²; vegetational records were made using a metal frame of 1m² The lateral-transects were located across morainic ridges formed by intermittent glacial retreats in 1858 and 1923. Vegetation records were made in 1996 and 1997 The longitudinal-transects ranched from the glacier-tounge (1996) to the terminal moraine from 1858. Vegetation records were made in 1998 and1999. Additionally soil samplings were taken and pH-values were determined in each plot. Also soil moisture factors were estimated along the lateral-transect.
