dc.descriptionAbstract: The objective of this work was to determine the reliability of a desert shrub, ARTEMISIA FILIFOLIA (sand sagebrush) as an indicator of soil depth. Near Lake Powell, Arizona/Utah; Hurricane, Utah; and SL George, Utah, more than 480 soil-depth-to-bedrock measurements were made in A. FILIFOLIA conununities, in transitional, mixed conununities, and in adjacent plant conununities that did not contain A. FILIFOLIA. It was learned that the presence of ARTEMISIA FILIFOLIA reliably indicates that the depth of the soil mantle over the bedrock is greate1 than 1 meter.-
