Savannas, Barrens, and Rock Outcrop Plant Communities of North America: Deep-Soil Savannas and Barrens of the Midwestern United States
Repeated burning of eastern tallgrass prairie increases richness and diversity, stabilizing late successional vegetation.
Understanding temporal effects of fire frequency on plant species diversity and vegetation structure is critical for managing tallgrass prairie (TGP), which occupies a mid-continental longitudinal… Expand
Two decades of low-severity prescribed fire increases soil nutrient availability in a Midwestern, USA oak (Quercus) forest
Abstract For the last 23 years, low-severity prescribed fire has been used to decrease shade and fire tolerant tree species, increase oak ( Quercus spp.), and increase herbaceous plant diversity in… Expand
Projecting the Success of Plant Population Restoration with Viability Analysis
Conserving viable populations of plant species requires that they have high probabilities of long-term persistence within natural habitats, such as a chance of extinction in 100 years of less than 5… Expand
MANAGEMENT AND RESTORATION ECOLOGY OF THE FEDERAL THREATENED MEAD'S MILKWEED, ASCLEPIAS MEADII (ASCLEPIADACEAE)
Twenty-year Changes in Burned and Unburned Sand Prairie Remnants in Northwestern Illinois and Implications for Management
Abstract Few data are available that compare long-term changes in burned and unburned prairie remnants in the eastern part of the tallgrass prairie region. To assess effects on species richness and… Expand

Platanthera leucophaea comprend 2 especes differant par le mecanisme de pollinisation, la morphologie et la distribution geographique. Lectotypification de P.l. et diagnose de P. praeclara sp.nov.
The relationship of rarity to plant reproductive biology
Protocorm mycobionts of the Federally threatened eastern prairie fringed orchid, Platanthera leucophaea (Nutt.) Lindley, and a technique to prompt leaf elongation in seedlings
A yet unresolved question in orchid biology is whether mycorrhizal fungi (= mycobionts) utilized as a carbon source by young seedlings (= protocorms) are different from those utilized by adult… Expand
Mycorrhizal Fungi and Cold-assisted Symbiotic Germination of the Federally Threatened Eastern Prairie Fringed Orchid, Platanthera leucophaea (Nuttall) Lindley
Abstract The 70% decline of the Federally threatened eastern prairie fringed orchid, Platanthera leucophaea (Nuttall) Lindley, has prompted concern for its recovery through artificial propagation. We… Expand
