This directory contains a recently made electronic version of the document:

Pastor, J., and W. M. Post. 1985. Development of a linked forest productivity-soil process model. ORNL/TM-9519. Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

It differs from the original paper version slightly, largely in layout, but a few typos were also corrected. Undoubtedly some errors were introduced in the process of scanning and electronic character recognition.

The figures and some of the tables are incorporated as encapsulated PostScript files. When viewing or producing hard copy using the .dvi version you will need these .eps files for inclusion by your device driver, for example xdvi or dvips. The PostScript and Portable Document Format versions are complete and can be printed without these separate .eps files.
