A list of the vascular plants found on five prairie remnants in the vicinity of Ames, Iowa, was compiled in 1965. The five relics, perhaps the last in the area, support a flora of about 180 native species and at least 32 adventive species. These areas, which include both upland and lowland prairie types, are described in the paper.
