Abstract:
Evidence is presented for repeated formation and destruction of a Mesquite (Prosopis spp.) bosque community on a Gila River terrace, eastern Arizona. Terrace formation was induced by a coarse alluvial cone produced by flooding in an ephemeral tributary, followed by vegetative colonization culminating in Mesquite. Destruction was accomplished by sustained flooding in the mainstream Gila River.
