    Description

    The soils and vegetation of the Caroline high islands, Federated States of Micronesia, are being mapped by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service and Soil Conservation Service. By the end of 1987, vegetation maps and reports on Kosrae, Pohnpei, Yap, four Truk Islands, and Palau are expected to be available. To compare soil types with vegetation types, vegetation maps were laid onto soils maps of these islands. There may be correlation with individual vegetation species and soil acidity, but no clear correlation was apparent between strongly acid soils and broad vegetation types within the precision of recent soil and vegetation surveys conducted in Micronesia.
