dc.descriptionAbstract: A thorough review of the scientific and technical literature for the period 1950 through the present was conducted of the soil-water relationships of 25 "bottomland" or flood plain tree species commonly found in eastern North America. The 25 tree species, and a compiled list of 110 keywords associated with the flood plain environment of these species, guided the search of 6 computerized bibliographical data bases, 9 abstract and index listings, and 67 serial publications. A brief abstract of the 281 references found applicable to the subject topic is provided, as are the citations for 67 references of a more general nature. A matrix was generated which consists of the 25 tree species, and 13 soil and irater parameters, i.e. soil texture, soil moisture, soil chemistry, water table; soil type, flooding and plant physiology, plant age, flooding frequency and season, duration of inundation, flooding depth, water oxygen, seed germination, and general flooding. The number of the literature citation was entered in the matrix to expedite the use of this literature review for a specific species-factor interaction.-
