PPS01 Konza prairie plant species list

Summary

Short name: 

PPS01

Abstract: 

This data set contains a list of Konza Prairie plant species numeric codes, full plant species names, and some general information about plant growth and life form,  and photosynthetic pathway as well. Konza plant species data sets (PVC01, PVC02, WAT012, etc.) use those numeric codes and abbreviations for all of the plant species recorded.
