    Description

    This handbook presents information and photographs obtained from forest lands along the breaks of the Missouri River in eastern Montana. Forest characteristics summarized in tables with accompanying photographs can be used to provide quick estimates of species composition and densities within similar landscape features. These estimates may be useful to foresters, wildlife biologists, range ecologists, and fire and fuel specialists. The book is organized by six physiographic positions: 1) waterways (ravines or gullies), 2) south aspects < 25 percent slope angle, 3) south aspect > 25 percent slope angle, 4) north aspects < 25 percent slope angle, 5) north aspects > 25 percent slope angle, and 6) ridges or benches. Within each physiographic position, sites containing three overstory densities are represented. Inventory data describes the forest floor, ground-level vegetation, tree density, average crown ratio, canopy base height, and other characteristics; two photographs (close and distant view) provide a visual image and accompany the quantitative descriptions.
