Badlands National Park
This research has two principle objectives. The first of these is to determine the influence of fire on the density and peak standing crop of the major grass species of the Badlands National Park mixed-grass prairie. The second major objective is to develop burning prescriptions that would favor native plant species over exotics. Preemergent herbicide treatments have been added to provide an alternative method of controlling exotic annual plants.
