Abstract

A root study was undertaken to learn about bitterbrush (Purshia tridentata (Pursh) DC) and cliffrose (Cowania stansburiana torr.) to gain some clues, perhaps, as to the causes of their present distribution. In a period extending from July 1959 to July 1960, twenty-four plants were excavated on six different sites in the Wasatch foothill belt in Utah County, Utah. Root and some soil characteristics were analyzed, described and compared.
