Abstract

The flora of the high prairie is peculiarly devoid of mosses and ferns. Excessive insolation and evaporation are prime causes of this. Though the necessary protection for mosses might be afforded by the tall grasses, the ground is too closely occupied, and moisture throughout much of the year is too scant.
