(1977, 1980) described two such forests in eastern Texas, one associated with the Neches River and dominated by Carpinus caroliniana Walt., Quercus nigra L., and Fraxinus caroliniana Mill., and a second on the shore of Toledo Bend Reservoir that is dominated by Fagus grandifolia Ehrh.
The upper site (33 [degrees] 10 [minutes] 54 [seconds] N, 81 [degrees] 34 [minutes] 53 [seconds] W; 46 m above sea level) was located on a second order section, with the dominant riparian vegetation consisting of red maple (Acer rubrum), ironwood (Carpinus caroliniana), laurel oak (Quercus laurifolia) and holly (Ilex opaca) (nomenclature follows Radford et al., 1968).
