Experiment 093 - Soil Heterogeneity and Plant Diversity in an Oak Savanna

This experiment was established in field D in August of 1991. There are 30, 2m x 2m plots. These plots are in prairie openings in unmanipulated natural vegetation. They were placed in a haphazard manner, being about 20m apart within an opening. Each plot was divided into 16, 0.5m x 0.5m subplots. Percent cover estimates of vegetation are done in September for each of the sixteen subplots in each of the 30 plots.
