This paper discusses the spectacular rings formed among stands of ringgrass (Muhlenbergia torreyi) and mentions that this type of growth occurs in many places and among many plants in the arid and semiarid Southwestern States. Brief physical and chemical characteristics of soils where ring growth occurs are given and speculations are made about conditions that contribute to formation of the rings.
