    The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of various intensities of grazing upon roots and root systems of plants native to the ponderosa pine zone of the Colorado Front Range. It was designed to ascertain the root characteristics of certain species of the plant community and any changes in root distribution induced by 17 years of moderate and heavy grazing by cattle. The cumulative effects of such grazing are also illustrated.
