Experiments were initiated in 1938 for the purpose of studying vegetative ground covers. This series of investigations was undertaken as the basis for studies in the integration of herbaceous and woody plants which constitute an important phase of the research in progress at the Floris Field Station of the Iowa Cooperative Hillculture Project. The herbaceous plants used at the station in these studies of integration with woody plants may be classified in three groups: natural weed covers, legumes and grasses.
