Red Rock Canyon State Park (SP) faces a number of complex issues, one of which is the management of off-highway vehicle (OHV) use. This current project was initiated (1) to investigate the state of knowledge on the effects of off-highway vehicles on public lands, (2) to investigate off-highway vehicle use and their effects upon cultural resources and natural values within Red .

An analysis of construction effects on vegetation and soils of the Colorado Desert: final report by Clark, David D; California State University, Fullerton. Dept. of Biology; Systems Control, inc; United States. Bureau of Land ManagementPages: J.C.F. Tedrow, in Encyclopedia of Soils in the Environment, Polar Desert Zone.

Polar Desert soils (Haploturbels) generally form on positive relief elements and on sandy/gravelly plains.

Desert pavement is usually present where there is an abundance of gravel in the substrate. Maximum Polar Desert soil development is usually confined to open-textured material.

Some effects of domestic sheep grazing on vegetation and soils were measured at four sites in the western Mojave Desert.

Although sheep have grazed the Mojave Desert for the past 50– years, the effects of grazing on the desert ecosystem are largely unknown. The results reflect only short-term effects of grazing, because fenced control areas were not Cited by: Published Soil Surveys for California.

Vegetation was sampled using four, 50 m long linear transects that crossed the channel at the midpoint of each transect. To limit the survey so that desert vegetation growing above the channel was not included, the ends of the transect were restricted to the bottom of the channel and the edges, and did not extend to the top of the channel by: Unscreened Residential Architects & Engineers in Eagle, Colorado Oldham Hirst Design, LLC Sandhill Circle Brainerd, MN Davis George Architects Tejon St.

The 3rd edition of this popular textbook introduces the reader to the investigation of vegetation systems with an emphasis on data analysis. The book succinctly illustrates the various paths leading to high quality data suitable for pattern recognition, pattern testing, static and dynamic modelling and model testing including spatial and temporal aspects of ecosystems.

Step-by. Vegetation of 40 sample stands on serpentine soils was analyzed and used to indicate conditions that might limit the establishment of annual range species.

Two groups of stands, “cypress” and “non-cypress,” were defined by cluster analysis. Stands with Cupressus sargentii also contained Arctostaphylos viscida and occurred on mesic sites with lower Ca in the sub-surface soil. Effects of annual precipitation on patch dynamics on two soils revealed strong correlations between shrub growth on deep sandy soils and above‐average rainfall years (r =P = ) and shrub colonization and below‐average rainfall years on shallow sandy soils (r =P = ).

This is the first comprehensive treatment of an important segment of the flora of California: native plants that have varying degrees of fidelity to serpentine rock and soil that make up over square miles in the Coast Ranges and the Sierra Nevada. Many of California's unique endemic plants are found nowhere else but on serpentine; over species, subspecies, and varieties.

The influence of forest vegetation on water and soil. WILM Associate Dean, State University College of Forestry, Syracuse, New York As a feature of its current program of work, the Forestry Division of FAO is preparing for publication a study on the influence of the forest on water, soil and climate, and their bearing on land-use policy.

A restored elk (Cervus elaphus) population in eastern Kentucky may be affecting ecosystem processes in a landscape composed of reclaimed grassland expanses and isolated forest remnants. Elk routinely select forested ridge-tops as resting and ruminating sites.

These locations are characterized by sparse or absent leaf litter, trampled and diminished vegetation, large Cited by: 2. Soil salinity is the salt content in the soil; the process of increasing the salt content is known as salinization.

Salts occur naturally within soils and water. Salination can be caused by natural processes such as mineral weathering or by the gradual withdrawal of an ocean. It can also come about through artificial processes such as irrigation and road salt.

The effects of climate change on soils in the western USA are not well known. This project expands the National Cooperative Soil Survey benchmark soils data set in the western USA to demonstrate how soil properties and near-surface processes change in response to climate.

Abstract. Spatial patterns of vegetation on an ephemeral lake bed (playa) in the northern Chihuahuan desert were closely correlated with elevation. Distributions of species along a m transect from the center to the edge of the playa showed abrupt boundaries at m and m.

These boundaries seem related to the maximum elevation covered with standing water .Book: Structure and Function of a Chihuahuan Desert Ecosystem Special Issue: Ecological Sites for Landscape Management Special Issue: Shifting Paradigms in Drylands.The solution: coupled vegetation and soil sampling Elements of a successful approach 1) One or more range cons working with soil scientists 2) Range cons that understand soils 3) A vegetation/soil surface sampling protocol that matches the pace of soil sampling 4) A coding system that relates vegetation measurements, soil.
