There's a visual richness, too, provided by fields of native big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii) and golden Indian grass (Sorghastrum nutans) waving in the wind.
The lignocellulosic feedstocks used in this study were Big Bluestem (Andropogon gerardii) and Giant reed grass (Arundo donax).
Knapp AK (1985) Effect of fire and drought on the ecophysiology of Andropogon gerardii and Panicum virgatum in a tallgrass prairie.
The prairie mixture included big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii Vitman), sideoats grama [Bouteloua curtinpendula (Michx.) Torr.], indiangrass (Sorghastrum nutans (L.) Nash), switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), and native forbs.
Small plot research on switchgrass and big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii Vitman) showed biomass yield was not affected by stands when stand frequencies the year after establishment were 40% or greater (Vogel, 1987; Masters, 1997).
scoparium and Andropogon gerardii Vitman completely displaced three cool-season grasses [Poa pratensis L., Agropyron repens (L.) Beauv., Agrostis scabra Willd.] within three years.
Grasses included big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii), little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparius), and Indian grass (Sorghastrum nutans).
The functional groups and species added were: [C.sub.3] graminoids, Elymus canadensis, Koeleria pyramidata, Stipa comata, and Stipa spartea; [C.sub.4] graminoids, Andropogon gerardii, Bouteloua gracilis, Panicum virgatum, and Sporobolus cryptandrus; legumes, Baptisia lactea, Dalea purpureum, Lupinus perennis, and Vicia villosa; and nonleguminous forbs, Asclepias tuberosa, Coreopsis palmata, Echinacea purpurea, and Liatrus aspera.
Among graminoids, [C.sup.4] grasses were generally restricted to brightly lit microsites, except on sandier soils where Schizachyrium scoparium and Andropogon gerardii also grew in semishade [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 3 OMITTED].
Major prairie grasses such as Andropogon gerardii and Sorghastrum nutans reproduce vegetatively (McKendrick et al., 1975; Ott and Hartnett, 2015) as do a variety of prairie forbs, such as Vemonia baldwinii, Solidago canadensis, Pityopsis graminifolia, and Silphium speciosum (Hartnett, 1990).
