Range plant communities and range health assessment guidelines for the foothills fescue natural subregion of Alberta : second approximation

Description

The foothills fescue natural subregion is the moistest of the four natural subregions that make up the grassland natural region. The foothills fescue is defined by Orthic Black Chernozemic soils with potential natural vegetation dominated by rough fescue, Parry oatgrass, Idaho fescue and wheatgrasses. A new feature of this guide is a soil correlation mechanism that provides more guidance in determining range site, an important link in range plant communities.
