Among the properties of prairie plants emphasized by Shimek (1925) was that of persistence. He referred several times to the way in which prairie species would persist in undisturbed strips and reinvade land which had been cleared of them, (1913,) (1931). This depends, however, upon natural sowing of seeds with subsequent establishment of colonies. This note deals with actual transplanting of living plants.
