WRV01 Riparian woody removal vegetation survey on watershed N2B at Konza Prairie

Summary

Short name: 

WRV01

Abstract: 

Woody riparian vegetation was cut in watershed N2B in winter 2010 for 30 m on each side of the stream channel. These vegetation surveys are from before and after removal. The treatments are naturally open (grassland), woody riparian removed, and re-planted after woody riparian removed.
