Table 1: Comparison among habitat types (C = center, FE = forest edge, P = pine plots) of the following soil characteristics: cation exchange capacity (CEC), percent organic matter (OM), pH, and summer temperature (C). Values are expressed as means SE. Means sharing common letters do not significantly differ at to Tukey's HSD. Analyses based on data transformed by square root.
