Dolliver Srate Park, forest communities, Iowa vascular flora, hill prairies, savanna
Dolliver State Park flora includes 408 species of vascular plants, several of which are uncommon for central Iowa. Sixteen vegetation types were identified including four new vegetation types: Quercus macrocarpa type, Populus grandidentata type, Populus tremuloides type and calcareous seep type. The flora and vegetation of Dolliver are found to be similar to Ledges State Park and Woodman Hollow State Preserve. Hill prairies and savanna-like areas are much more abundant in Dolliver than these other areas along the Des Moines River.
