The effect of topography

The Caddo Canyons are a nice example of the effect of topography on vegetation. The canyons support eastern deciduous forest – the southwesternmost extension of this biome, but once you emerge from the canyons you are back in the prairie.

The wet weather is probably responsible for the extent of the horsetails on the canyon floor, and the amount of wildflowers above the canyon lip.
