The article presents a study which investigates the growth and distribution pattern of corchorus depressus in a semi arid desert in Jodhpur, India. The study assessed the phytosociological parameters of the area and the reproductive and aggressive capacity of the species in various soil mixtures. It reveals that the plant's aggressiveness and reproductive capacity increases in clay. The authors conclude that the vegetation patterns are linked with relief position and soil moisture.
