AbstractThe structure of Schizachyrium scoparium plants was studied in restored prairies of various ages (8, 17 and 23 years after restoration, as well as a reference site). Plants in older restorations had larger basal areas, more hollow crowns and more fragmentation than those in 8 year old restorations.
