The researchers studied the distribution and abundance of the plant species of farmland woodlots in central Iowa, with particular emphasis on the differences in species composition between sites currently or recently grazed by cattle versus those that had not been grazed for more than 50 years. In addition, various attributes of common species and less common (restricted) species were compared.
