The Dinosaur National Monument Ecosystem
“The Dinosaur ecosystem contains a landscape of great beauty and variety. The variety grew out of the past geologic events and current geological processes of weathering and erosion by ice, running water, and wind. Uplift and erosion of the Uinta Mountains during the past 65 million years has exposed 26 rock formations within the monument. Each rock formation weathers into its own soil type, ... [which] results in a variety of plants adapted to those soils.”
