Abstract

Root intersection count data at specified depths from six sites. Three from Garner Run (Ridge Top, Midslope, and Valley Floor) and Three from Shale Pits (Ridge Top, Midslope, and Valley Floor). When pits were dug at each of these locations, photographs of each transect were taken. Root intersections were then identified from these photos and counted in an effort to learn about root distribution at each site.

● Pits were dug at each location, photographs with scale taken at each site.
● From photographs root intersections identified, marked, and counted.
● Counted data divided according to depth.
● Root distribution found from count data can area of each sample.

Date Range Comments: A one time sample when pits were dug.
