Title: Biotic Communities of Kaibab Plateau, Arizona
Author: Rasmussen, D.I.
Subject: Kaibab Plateau, Mixed-grass prairie, Mixed conifer, Wildlife
Abstract: The recognition of the spatial agreement of many plant and animal communities and their consideration as biotic communities has been a recent development in biological fields. Plant communities have been studied without attention to the animals, but the investigations of terrestrial animal communities without some consideration of plants is practically impossible. Therefore, the necessity for animal ecologists to recognize the importance of plants has given the study of bio-ecology its greatest impetus.
