2014 Sampling Bluestem Prairie, MN
Three datasets. We assessed the vegetation structures at Bluestem Prairie and compared it to past datasets. We hypothesized that invasive cool-season grasses would increase and correlate with changes in climate. One dataset is the soil moisture at our three plots. When compared to the past, soil moisture increased. The other two is our plant data from June and July 2014. The cover of grasses adn Kentucky bluegrass increased significantly compared to past datasets. We used a pin-drop method to gather the data.
