Abstract:

This study reviews the requirements of a vegetation classification for use at medium to small scales in military research and development. Applications for airmobile and groundmobile operations are given special attention. Existing classifications are reviewed and none is found completely suited to the purposes of the study. A new classification is presented which is basically physiognomic, and the results of test applications in Peru and northern California are given. Author
