AbstractAlkali sagebrush ranges were found to have a shallow, root restricting claypan soil. In contrast, the adjacent big sagebrush plant community occurred on loamy soils where roots penetrated freely. This direct relationship between range sites and soils shows how soil surveys can be used to determine range sites.
