Abstract

Success in establishment of prairie species was measured using sod and seedling transplants. Sod transplants, 25 cm in diameter and 10-20 cm in depth, were successful for 42 species. Fourteen species present in sod transplants set in both annual weeds and Bromus inermis sod illustrated the effect of competition on vigor. After two years, in the weedy plot, all species were present, 11 had flowered and 5 had spread. In the Bromus plot, 9 species had died, 2 had flowered and none had spread. Seedling transplants of 48 of 52 prairie species were present after overwintering. One-quart plastic bags and 3" and 4" peat pots were used. Of 16 species set into Poa pratensis sod, after 2 years, 15 species were present and 7 had flowered.
