Abstract

This problem was a study of plant species in the Escalante Desert, Utah, in relation to soil conditions. The plants were surveyed by the transect-plot method. The plants and soils were analyzed by percentage-frequency techniques. There is no measurable correlation between soil series and the dominant plants which occur on the soils. There is no correlation between soil types and the plants that are dominant on the soil types. There is a definite correlation between textural classes of the soil and the plants that are dominant on these classes.
