Description

This guide presents a classification of the Ecological Types of the eastern slope of the Wind River Range (WRR) on the Shoshone National Forest in west-central Wyoming. Ecological Types integrate vegetation and environmental characteristics, including climate, geology, landform, and soils, into a comprehensive ecosystem classification. The three objectives are: (1) complete field data collection, (2) simultaneously develop soil map unit components and Ecological Types, and (3) publish the ecological type classification such that it is compatible with the National Cooperative Soil Survey spatial and tabular data. Fifty-eight Ecological Types were organized into 3 ecosystems, 3 physiognomic groups, and 12 vegetation series.
