Abstract

Chief objectives of the 2009 baseline monitoring were to collect andanalyze data in ground-layer vegetation on species composition and diversity and to quantifycomposition, stem density, and percent canopy cover in the shrub stratum. Proposed habitatmanagement includes removal of invasive shrubs, control efforts with selected herbaceouswetland species, and localized seeding of native prairie and wetland species followed by habitatmanagement involving prescribed fire.
