AbstractEvaluates the effects of adding nitrogen and phosphorus to Florida flatwoods that had been converted to rangelands. Overall plant diversity decreased with increased nitrogen due to dominance by goldenrods, including Solidago fistulosa. Density of forbs increased with increasing nitrogen but Andropogon virginicus and Aristida stricta were eliminated from the site.
