The vegetation of the Balsam Mountains of southwest Virginia: a phytosociological study


, : The vegetation of the Balsam Mountains of southwest Virginia: a phytosociological study. Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club 111(3): 287-300

Vegetation was surveyed in 65 forest stands at alt. between 1125 and 1547 m and data examined using detrended correspondence analysis. Nine community types were identified: spruce; spruce/fir; northern broadleaves (beech/maple and dwarf beech subtypes); yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis) (ravine and boulder field subtypes); mesophytic; mesophytic oak; and northern red oak.

Inter-individual distances (IIDs), during open-field tests, were measured in single sex pairs of quail of lines divergently selected for high (HSR) or low (LSR) levels of social reinstatement (SR) behaviour. Tests were carried out when the chicks...
