  • A classification and monitoring system for the hackberry-shrub ecological type was developed based on plant succession in the Sand Hills ecosystem in northern Nebraska and southern South Dakota. Seral stages are quantitatively derived groupings of vegetation composition based on the range of variability within the current ecological type. Multivariate statistical methods determined three key variables that best assign data (sites) to one of four seral stages within the contemporary hackberry… CONTINUE READING
