On February 3rd I presented the results of a study involving patch burn grazing on a prairie natural area. For those interested, here is a link to a PDF that I generated from the Powerpoint slides and my notes. Feel free to post any questions or comments here.


  1. Great presentation, with very clear arguments. It is interesting to see the comparisons.

  2. Thanks for sharing! Are there any control transects?

    1. Great question. There are control transects on a nearby prairie that have been sampled eight times over the past 17 years. Richness and diversity on these transects fluctuate from year to year while mean C-value stays relatively constant around 4.50. The two years of baseline data also serve as controls. This study is currently being polished for submission to a peer reviewed journal.
