Abstract : Analyses of relationships between hydric soils and wetland plant species were made at a site in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range, Alaska, as part of a cooperative effort between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Soil Conservation Service to develop methods for field identification of wetlands and hydric soils. The site is considered to be representative of broad regions of acidic tussock tundra in the foothills. Seven soil types (subgroups) were identified at the site. All except two are considered hydric.
