Influence of Aspect on Forests of the Clarksville Soils in Dent County, Missouri
Abstract:In studying site index measurements for soil mapping units, the influence of aspect on site index was observed. Clarksville soils were selected for more intensive study. These soils are described with their principal cover types. Using the oak plot data, regression equations were developed to test for most favorable aspect. Equations are given from which site index of shortleaf pine and upland oak can be calculated at any given aspect. The influence of aspect upon species composition is noted.
