However, when subjected to greater precipitation amounts (more than 10 mm), the crusted surfaces started to show favourable effects on evaporation rates, and the higher evaporation rates during the second evaporation phase for the crusts bearing microorganisms resulted in greater water loss.
The change in soil texture with crust development also results in an increased water retention for microbiotic crusts, which in turn leads to reduced infiltration and dryness of deeper level soil within crusted areas.
On physical examination, the scalp and trunk were noted to exhibit segmental alopecia along with cicatricial and crusted lesions.
