Abstract

This study of the vegetation and habitat factors of a small area of prairie was begun June 25 and terminated July 18, 1927, when the grass was mowed for hay. The region studied is located in the southwest quarter of the southeast quarter of section 6, Bennington Township, Black Hawk County, Iowa. Physiographically, it is on the summit of the divide between tributaries of the Reel Cedar and Wapsipinicon rivers. This small area is gently rolling and slopes toward the south. The surface soil is dark brown or black loam under which a yellow, pebbly clay is found.
