    Description

    The southeast Missouri Ozarks is a rugged, deeply dissected landscape. Intermittent creeks are commonly found throughout the region, yet our understanding of this ecosystem component is poor. Landform features, flooding frequency, and flooding duration are variables known to affect vegetation distribution patterns along perennial systems. We investigated if these variables, and/or the geological substrate and parent material, could also be used to explain distribution patterns of natural communities and species groups along intermittent creeks in the southeast Missouri Ozarks.
