PVC02 Plant Species Composition on Selected Watersheds at Konza Prairie

Summary

Short name: 

PVC02

Abstract: 

Canopy coverage and frequency were recorded in 20 circular 10 sq m plots. Six treatments were sampled, three ungrazed and three to grazed by native grazers. In each case one of the three watersheds was unburned, another burned annually in April, the third burned every four years in April. In each treatment two soils were sampled: a lower-slope deep fertile nonrocky soil (tully silty clay loam), and a shallow rocky soil (florence cherty silt loam) on level to gently sloping ridges. In 1983 another ungrazed annual burn area (1c) was added (both tully and florence soils) because original area (1d) appeared aberrant.
