Résumé

This study characterizes the species composition, structure, and distribution of woody plants on the floodplain of the Cache River in northeastern Arkansas. Trees, saplings, and shrubs were sampled in 249 plots along with 28 environmental variables. Classification of the plots resulted in four forest dominance types being identified. The basal area, density, species richness, and diversity of these four types were within the range of values established for similar floodplain forests throughout the Coastal Plain of the southeastern United States. Canonical correspondence analysis revealed the distribution of species to be significantly correlated with flood depth and flood duration as well as geomorphic position and soil texture.
