Description

From the text ... 'The objective of this study was to quantify growth and survival of honey mesquite seedlings in two recently burned grass stands of contrasting growth potential: (1) native perennial mid-short grass (Texas wintergrass, Arizona cottontop, buffalograss); and (2) an introduced tallgrass (kleingrass) monoculture.'
