Data Extent

Distribution and Composition of the Seed Bank at the Kellogg Biological Station, Hickory Corners, MI (1990 to 2008)

The distribution and composition of the weed seed bank in treatments 1-7 of the LTER main site is periodically (every 3-6 years) evaluated using elutriation and seed counting methods. The goal is to determine: how well the seed bank predicts weed abundances and composition in subsequent years, and how changes in disturbance (tillage) and plant species (cropping systems) affect the bank. Composite soil samples to two depths are periodically elutriated to determine seed densities, species composition, and viabilities of seven target species which are dominant on the site.
