...-Mississippian time in the Toquima Range. This restricts the length of time of the Antler orogeny from Late Devonian to pre-middle Mississippian (Meramec) instead of Late Devonian to mid-Pennsylvanian. Such an interpretation is consistent with recently published data from the Pinyon Range area, Nevada...

This unconformity is perhaps most profound in the Stansbury Range where Pinyon Peak limestone overlies rocks as old...

The modern vegetation at altitudes above 2,750 m in these ranges is a sprucefir forest with ponderosa pine and Douglas fir; at lower altitudes, pinyon pine and juniper woodlands occur. Below about 2,100 m, pinyon-juniper and juniper...
