The vascular flora of a 12 ha successional prairie in Jasper County, Illinois was studied during the growing season of 1996. Abundance and flowering dates (initial, peak, and final) were determined for most of the species. Also, frequency (%), average cover, and importance value (IV = 200) of the taxa were determined using randomly located quadrats along line transects through the area. One hundred forty-four taxa were observed in the prairie, 35 monocots and 109 dicots, of which 20 were woody… Expand

Biodiversity Data in the Information Age: Do 21st Century Floras Make the Grade?
TLDR
This paper develops a grading scheme for floras and applies it to 145 articles in 5 leading journals published from 2000 through 2009, and found that the average ‘grade’ was 80%, and did not vary among journals. Expand
