The sagebrush occupy positions on glacial outwash plains. Each plain promotes a very homogeneous appearing stand, but the stands differ as whole units when compared to neighboring outwashes which are of a different texture, elevation and/or age. My project was to work out a way to quantify and compare the cambial arcs of sagebrush samples taken in a more extensive study on the ecology of sagebrush on these glacial outwash plains being conducted by Darold Sabinske.
