Abstract

The first part of this paper will discuss the available information on microbiotic crusts, emphasizing their geomorphic and pedological aspects, as well as the sparse existing data for crusts in cold regions. The second part will describe in some detail the microbiotic crusts found in the high equatorial Venezuelan Andes, as these seem to be the first instance of microbiotic crusts ever described for any high-altitude area in the world
