Title: Soil moisture and vegetation patterns in northern California forests

Author: Griffin, James R.;

Date: 1967

Source: Res. Paper PSW-RP-46. Berkeley, CA: Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture; 22 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Twenty-nine soil-vegetation plots were studied in a broad transect across the southern Cascade Range. Variations in soil moisture patterns during the growing season and in soil moisture tension values are discussed. Plot soil moisture values for 40- and 80-cm. depths in August and September are integrated into a soil drought index. Vegetation patterns are described in relationto this index. Use of data on species presence for a vegetation drought index is explored.

Keywords: soil moisture tension, soil-vegetation patterns, California pine forests, California mixed conifer forests, vegetation drought index (VM), soil drought index (SDI), Cascade Mountains
