The Ecology of Aspen


During the field season of 1972, all the exclosures in the Jackson Hole area were visited and data were collected on fenceline contrasts whether they involve the aspen community or not. As has been the cause for several years, data show that the aspen community is severaly altered in the Jackson Hole area but will recover under protection. Less obvious, but perhaps more important from the point of view of watershed damage, the bluebunch wheatgrass, also under winter pressure from elk, has changed on south slopes to a thickspike wheatgrass community. Project Number 130.
