The effect of pocket gopher ( Geomys attwateri ) mounds on Texas coastal prairie was investigated by depositing simulated mounds at locations where vegetation had previously been quantified. Mounds were constructed in March 1984 and vegetation on mounds and random sites was sampled in May and October 1984. Most plant biomass was negatively impacted by mounds in May, but dicot shoot biomass increased. Species diversity was also higher on mounds in May than in March. By October, neither plant… CONTINUE READING
