Echinacea and mixed-grass prairie vegetation project

Mixed grass Picture1

Here is our research crew collecting data on Echinacea angustifolia root resprouting at a field site near Miles City, Montana.

This project was conducted in 2002 to collect baseline data on Echinacea angustifolia populations in north-central Kansas and western North Dakota and was funded by the U.S. Forest Service. Only the Kansas data are presented here. The areas sampled are the thinner soils in Greenhorn-limestone based soils with loess deposits.

Location data

The file below contains the GPS locations using the mapping projection NAD83 for all plots along transects. The plots were located 4 m apart. More information on the siting of these plots is in the document below.
