Summary

These data provide the locational coordinates, soil texture characteristics, plant species occurrence and cover, and vegetation summary characteristics for the Tsezhin bii region in the south-central area of the Navajo Nation. They were collected in the fall of 2004 and their subsequent analysis reported in the paper titled 'Vegetation of semi-stable rangeland dunes of the Navajo Nation, Southwestern USA' in the journal Arid Lands Research and Management in 2016.

Purpose

These data were collected to document plant composition, richness and cover in relationship to soil sand composition, where higher composition of sand is associated with more wind erosion and sediment movement, and the greater potential for dune mobility. The data were also used to examine whether these plant properties support the previously hypothesized relationship between sand mobility and the distribution of shallow-rooted and deep-rooted species.
