DescriptionThis report is a compilation of autecological information previously scattered about in several hundred publications. It includes a comparison of the tolerances, traits, and attributes of native northwestern tree species. The species are ranked with respect to 69 environmental factors, phenotypic characteristics, and physical parameters. These rankings, with the literature references from which they were derived, should be useful aids to species selection, management, and research in the Pacific Northwest.
