This chapter focuses on the forests of the Klamath Mountains. It first discusses the factors influencing vegetation and then discusses the life-zone concept, which explains the distribution of vegetation in the Klamaths. The chapter describes the two most common zonal-classification systems: cover type, or the current dominant vegetation; and potential vegetation, or the vegetation that would dominate in the absence of disturbance. It also explains the use of the concept of potential vegetation to project forest change over time.

Keywords:   forests, Klamath Mountains, vegetation, life-zone concept, zonal-classification systems, cover type, potential vegetation
