Vernon Hill Country of the Southern Till Plains Division. Although, floristically speaking, the study area lies within the Oak-Hickory Forest Region of the Western Mesophytic Forest (Braun 1950), the local vegetative pattern can more properly be described ...

Floristically~ it lies within the Oak-Hickory Forest Region of the Western Mesophytic Forest (Braun 1950). However, the local pattern of vegetation can best be described as forest-prairie ecotone, and the Jamestown site is optimally situated to have afforded its occupants easy access to the plant resources of ...
