AbstractBush muhly appears to dominate creosotebush and is perhaps responsible for the death of the creosotebush. A study in 1972 was conducted on New Mexico State University's Agricultural Experiment Station Ranch in Dona Ana County, New Mexico, to determine if the above statement is true, and if so, which factors may be responsible.
