Mueggler, Walter F. 1988. Aspen community types of the Intermountain Region. Gen. Tech. Rep. INT-250. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Research Station. 135 p.
This vegetation classification is based upon existing community structure and composition in the aspen-dominated forests of the Intermountain Region of the Forest Service. The 56 community types occur within eight tree-cover types. A diagnostic key using indicator species facilitates field identification of the community types. Vegetational composition, productivity, and successional status are included. Tables provide detailed comparisons of community types. The classification and descriptions are based upon field data from over 2,100 aspen stands scattered over southeastern Idaho, western Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada.
Keywords: aspen forests, community types, plant communities, forest ecoiogy, classification, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming
