Title: Lithosequence of soils and associated vegetation on subalpine range of the Wasatch Plateau, Utah.

Author: Klemmedson, James O.; Tiedemann, Arthur R.;

Date: 1998

Source: Res. Note PNW-RN-524. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 16 p

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: On degraded subalpine range in Utah, the authors examined the role of soil and parent material nutrients and organic carbon (Corg) in the development of soil and plants on a transect across six strata that formed visible concentric alternating bands of high and low productivity. Relations for soil and parent material phosphorus (P) and sulfur (S) were of particular interest. Odd-numbered strata displayed visibly lower amounts of surface rock cover and greater vegetative cover than even-numbered strata. Data suggest that S of the parent material may play a key role in the development of these soil plant systems.

Keywords: Parent material, soil nutrients, pattern, phosphorus, sulfur, Stipa lettermanii, Cymopterus lemmonii, overgrazing, erosion, productivity
