Granite bedrock and sequoia forests
Bedrock influences forests—and the landscapes of which they are a part—more than was thought, according to researchers funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Critical Zone Observatories (CZO) network. The scientists investigated the factors that influence forest cover in California 's Sierra Nevada. Bedrock may be as important as temperature and moisture, they found, in regulating the distribution of trees and other vegetation across mountain slopes.
