  • The calcareous prairies of Louisiana have been threatened by the encroachment of woody plants, primarily eastern red cedar (Juniperus virginiana). The restoration and management of these rare plant communities require a thorough understanding of the soils supporting them. The knowledge of whether eastern red cedar encroachment has altered these soils is also of interest. We studied the depth distribution, at contrasting vegetation types (prairie, transition, forest) and landscape positions, of… CONTINUE READING
