A study of the McKenzie River floodplains, terraces and glacial
outwash plains was undertaken to classify and describe the vegetation
and soils of a previously little studied synecological unit.
During the summer of 1971, 54 analytic vegetation and soil
plots (stands) were studied. Cover and frequency of all trees, shrubs,...
A physio-ecological study of Lobaria pulmonaria (L. ) Hoffm.
was done to determine if geographic variation occurred within the
species. Lobaria pulmonaria was collected from Table Mountain,
Oak Creek, and Lost Prairie, located in the Coast Range, Willamette
Valley, and Cascade Range respectively in Western Oregon.
During 1971 and 1972...
This study examines several aspects of nitrogen fixation by
Purshia tridentata (Pursh) D. C., a rosaceous shrub widespread in the
central Oregon pumice region, especially as an understory species in
Pinus ponderosa and Pinus contorta forests. Anatomical studies of
root nodules under the light microscope revealed strong similarities
The objectives of this study include: (1) analysis of Chamaecyparis
lawsoniana, C. taiwanensis, and C. formosensis forests including
the structure, composition, and dynamics of plant communities and
their environmental relationships; and (2) comparison of the temperate
Chamaecyparis forests of Taiwan and the Pacific Northwest with emphasis
on structural and successional...
Seedlings from 25 provenances of Abies grandis and Abies
concolor were studied at two plantations, 12 at Philomath, Oregon,
and 13 at Camino, California. Native seedlings were studied at four
of the provenances' field sites. Stomatal infiltration pressure
measurements and plant moisture stress measurements were made
throughout one summer on...
Twelve plots at six sites in southwestern Oregon were studied to determine the degree to which various soil characteristics are related to the occurrence and growth of Chamaecyparis lawsoniana and Thuja plicata. Soil profiles and vegetation were described in each plot, and measurements were made of insolation, soil and litter...
Larix laricina in Alaska occurs on sites ranging from productive
slopes and riverbottoms to wet bogs underlain by permafrost. It is
largest on sites without permafrost, where it is associated with
Picea glauca, but is much more common in bogs, where it occurs with
Picea mariana. In this study, I...
The effects of burial by tephra (volcanic aerial ejecta) on
forest understory plants were examined northeast of Mount St. Helens,
Washington, in the area where the 18 May 1980 eruption deposited
tephra but did not destroy canopy trees. At six sites along a tephra
depth gradient from 2-15 cm, understory...
