Soil Physical Properties in Relation to Plant Community Patterns in the Shadscale Zone of Northwestern Utah
Physical properties of soils associated with monospecific communities of Eurotia lanata and Atriplex confertifolia were studied to determine their possible influence on the vegetation pattern. Complete homogeneity of all properties examined indicated a lack of genetic soil variability as a cause of community differentiation.
