Description

Title:The Relation of Evaporation and Soil Moisture to Plant Succession in a Ravine
Author(s):Ullrich, F.T.
Subject(s):evaporation
soil moisture
McLeish ravine
Abstract:For some time geologists have surmised that differences in the evaporative power of the air and the soil-moisture content account for the succession of vegetation that accompanies the physiographic changes in the development of a ravine. In order to determine whether or not this surmise can be supported by experimental data, this study was made during the summer of 1913. The ravine selected for investigation was the McLeish ravine, which lies in the south-eastern part of the beautiful village of Glencoe, about sixteen miles north of Chicago.
