• Survival Patterns of Major Perennials in Salt Desert Shrub Communities of Southwestern Utah

      West, N. E. (Society for Range Management, 1979-11-01)
      Chart quadrat records periodically taken at the Desert Experimental Range in southwestern Utah over 34 years were examined for evidence of establishment and survival of eight major perennial plant species. A set of seedlings that became established in 1935-37 were followed until 1968-70. Relatively few individuals have died since the second year after establishment. There were few significant differences between the survival of plants in the grazed versus ungrazed plots.
