Prairiana orizaba Ball and Reeves (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Cicadellidae), colonist of the introduced African bunchgrass Eragrostis curvula (Poaceae), with notes on the use of little bluestem, Schizachyrium scoparium
(Poaceae), by P.
In these fields Sorghastrum nutans, Andropogon gerardii, Schizachyrium scoparium
, and Panicum virgatum were the dominant grasses while Solidago canadensis was the dominant forb.

Total length of the root system was reduced on plants of Schizachyrium scoparium
after it was colonized by VAM (Anderson and Liberta, 1992).
The addition of fertilizer to the study plots did not significantly affect the cover, density, or height of Tridens flavus, Schizachyrium scoparium
, Rudbeckia hirta, R.
Frequencies of warm-season grasses indicated higher values for Bouteloua curtipendula (sideoats grama), Schizachyrium scoparium
(little bluestem), and Sporobolus asper (tall dropseed) at SCP than at NMP (Table 8).
In unfertilized plots, I used three forb (Solidago rigida, Lespedeza capitata, Liatris aspera, and Achillea millefolium) and four graminoid species (Agropyron repens, Poa pratensis, Schizachyrium scoparium
, and Cyperus sp.
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].

Grasses present in both sedge meadows include Andropogon gerardii, Muhlenbergia glomerata, Muhlenbergia mexicana, Schizachyrium scoparium

The ground cover surrounding the colony was visually estimated to be 20%, and was comprised of several small clumps of Schizachyrium scoparium
