    Description

    On degraded subalpine range in Utah, the authors examined the role of soil and parent material nutrients and organic carbon (Corg) in the development of soil and plants on a transect across six strata that formed visible concentric alternating bands of high and low productivity. Relations for soil and parent material phosphorus (P) and sulfur (S) were of particular interest. Odd-numbered strata displayed visibly lower amounts of surface rock cover and greater vegetative cover than even-numbered strata. Data suggest that S of the parent material may play a key role in the development of these soil plant systems.
