A linear vegetation pattern. consists of alternating grassland micro troughs and woody micro crests Janes which were orientated parallel to the slope occurred on the foot slope of the Baviaansberg, in the Warmbatbs area, Northern Province. From a landscape ecological approach the principal aims of the study was to explain the phenomeno~ to quantify the vertical and horizontal variation of features and to accent the impact of man on it. The differentiation in Tukulu and Etosha forms in micro troughs and micro crests respectively were the effect of several soil processes. Granulometric analyses showed that the parent material of soil was derived from one source. Colluviation and deposit of parent material was probably the starting-point of landscape development where the divided surface flow of water apparently initiated the micro structures. As a result of this the development of soil and water regime differences lead to vegetation differences.
