INT-GTR-280: Proceedings-management and productivity of western-montane forest soils

Harvey, Alan E.; Neuenschwander, Leon F., compilers. 1991. Proceedings-management and productivity of western-montane forest soils; 1990 April 10-12; Boise, ID. Gen. Tech. Rep. INT-280. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Research Station. 254 p.

Includes 35 papers and six poster synopses presenting state-of-the-art knowledge on the nature and problems of integrating soils information and expertise into management of inland western forest resources. Papers emphasize regional information, but include data from world literature and previously unpublished material from regional experts.

Keywords: soil formation, soil properties, plant communities, ecosystems, fire influences, rhizosphere biology, silviculture, monitoring, nitrogen fixation, ectomycorrhiza, erosion, diseases, climate change
