Root Studies of Important Range Plants of the Boise River Watershed
Abstract:A serious range-erosion situation has developed on the Boise River watershed in southwestern Idaho. An intensive study of this problem reveals the fact that the erosion is largely the result of the replacement of fibrous-rooted plants by those having taproots and semitaproots, and that it can be controlled effectively by reestablishing the original grass species or similar fibrous-rooted plants.
