Rocks isolated to an altitude range

Hi.

Just a quick newbie question...Is there a way to limit a rock population to an altitude range?

Sure is.  Go to your rock population and check the "Use density shader" box.  Then click the "+"and either select  "Assign shader" or "Create shader".  If you create a new shader, just follow the menu yo "Colour shader" then "Distribution shader v4".  Then click the same "+" again and select "Go to distribution shader 4 xx" and you will see many controls -- min and max slope and altitude are two options.

Aaaaahhhhh!  Thank you, sir.  I was in the right neighborhood, but had gotten lost in the "shaderland" menus.

Much obliged,

Have a great day!
