It may also explain why Bray could find no sites fitting his grass criterion on moister, finer textured soils, given that forbs dominated all but the sandiest and sunniest microsites in the current study [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED].
The shift of the mean distribution of species with the steepest leaves toward siltier sites is partly an artifact of the reduction in total herb cover in the sunniest, sandiest microsites [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED].
The second article by Wendy Doniger is devoted to the Kedarakhanda of the Skandapurana, "The Scrapbook of Undeserved Salvation." What sets the Kedarakhanda apart is that, unlike other puranas where the unifying theme may be spacial or temporal, this first book of the first section of "the sandiest
