White Rock Lake, lying at the east border of the City of Dallas, has been the focus of considerable biological study during the past few years, and the writer has been especially interested in the trees growing in the region. In this connection the question arose as to whether or not a correlation might exist between the species of woody plants found in the locality, and the physical and chemical structure of the various soils of the vicinity. The recently completed Soil Survey of Dallas County offers data upon the origin and nature of these soils, and these have been studied in connection with the woody vegetation growing upon them, this paper being the summation of the work. Because of the smallness of the area studied, such conclusions as are drawn should be considered indicative rather than demonstrative.
