RESEARCH SUMMARY

A tallgrass prairie forb in a landscape shaped by patch burn grazing



Aldo Leopold said that “To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering.”  This research was aimed at understanding the effect of fire and grazing on a conservative forb commonly known as Indian plantain (Arnoglossum plantagineum).  Read the our research summary to see if that special part of the system was “kept”.
