Soil-plant community relationships in the Selkirk Mountains of northern Idaho

Soils and the native plant communities they support often exhibit a strong mutual dependence within geographically similar areas. In mid- to high-elevation forests of northern Idaho, volcanic ash is an important soil parent material and has had a major impact on soil properties and the distribution of vegetation. As a result, there are several well-expressed soil-plant community type associations within this region.Document Type: Other Documents
