Exploring effects of geologic substrate on plant growth and fitness in the White Mountains, Eastern California

Rhea Amatya, Brianne Roxbrough, Aria Schwartz & Halle Sunabe
Soil properties greatly influence the structure and health of plant communities and are determined by the geologic substrate from which the soil originates. In this study, we explored the impact of soils from different geologic substrates on plant fitness and health in the White Mountains of California. We examined physical and chemical properties of dolomite, shale, and granite-derived soils and their effects on plant growth and fitness through a plant survey and germination bioassay. We...
