Year: 1999

Journal: Castanea
Volume: 64
Issue: 2
Pages: 138-162

Article Topic(s): Community level survey, Disturbance, Floristics, Succession
Research Setting(s): Longleaf pine, Sandhill

Species Referenced: Ageratina aromatica (Lesser snakeroot), Aristida beyrichiana (Beyrich threeawn), Panicum virgatum (Switchgrass), Schizachyrium scoparium (Little bluestem),


Density of vascular plants in different longleaf pine understory communities were compared in this study. Ageratina aromatica density was greater in burned wiregrass communities than in burned sites dominated by Andropogon or in unburned sites. Hypericum tetrapetalum was found more commonly in burned, wiregrass dominated, xeric depressions.
