Understanding responses of both dominant and sub-dominant plant speciesto management regimes and climatic variables is a critical component ofunderstanding an ecosystem's potential response to local or regional changes insuch parameters. The dominant vegetation of much of the North Americantallgrassprairie is composed of C4 grasses. As the most abundant species,Andropogon gerardii has been well characterizedecologically. The second most abundant, co-dominant species,Sorghastrum nutans, has… CONTINUE READING
