Vegetation Zones Beyond the Study Area

Vegetation Zones Beyond the Study Area, N. Edmund Kelley, 1983, School of American Research Press, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Arroyo Hondo Archeological Series, Appendix B, Volume 1

         Appendix B in The Contemporary Ecology of Arroyo Hondo New Mexico presents a brief description of the shortgrass plains to the south and west of Arroyo Hondo Pueblo and the montane forests and alpine tundra of the Sangre de Cristo range to its east and northeast. Although these lie outside the Arroyo Hondo Pueblo study area, they were presumably of at least seasonal importance to the Arroyo Hondo people as resource areas of food and raw materials.
