Although the species composition of the debris flow is typical for these elevations and terralns, the forest basal areas are smaller than the 50 to 60-[m.sup.2] [ha.sup.-1] reported for Pinus contorta forests (Barbour, 1988; Parker, 1991) and the 70-[m.sup.2] [ha.sup.-1] reported for Abies magnifica forests (Parker, 1991) on similar elevations and terrains.
