Title: Soil properties associated with vegetation patches in a Pinus Ponderosa--bunchgrass mosaic

Author: Kerns, Becky K.; Moore, Margaret M.; Timpson, Michael E.; Hart, Stephen C.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: Since Euro-American settlement fire, exclusion and other factors have dramatically altered interior western coniferous forests. Once open and parklike, present-day structure in many southwestern pinus ponderosa forests consists of dense stands of young, small diameter trees, with small patches of larger, old trees, and relict open bunchgrass areas. Our objectives were to assess differences in soil properties associated with these different vegetation patches.

Keywords: forest soils, grassland soils, phytoliths, biosequence, nonmetric multidimensional scaling
