dc.description.abstractA single, mature and 12 smaller honey mesquite (Prosopis glandulosa Torr. var. glandulosa) trees were partially excavated during 1986 to examine root distributional patterns. The mature tree had an extensive lateral root system and a large tap root that subdivided into 3 smaller tap roots at a depth near 1 m. The lateral root system of all trees was concentrated in the upper 0.3 m of the soil profile. Results from the excavations provide evidence in support of honey mesquite's classification as a facultative phreatophyte.
