Abstract

This study used slope gradient and 2 previously published geomorphic indices, terrain shape index and landform index that quantify landform shape and protection to develop a field-based landform quantification system at 4 study areas in southern Appalachians. An application of the landform quantification system is illustrated by predicting the distribution of eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) ecosystems in northwestern South Carolina.
