dc.description.abstract Surveyor's records were used to determine the boundaries of prairies and fens that occurred in Bath Township, Greene Co., Ohio, in 1802. All of the old prairie sites were explored on foot in September and October 1984, to locate existing remnants. Four fen, four prairie, and four marsh remnants were located and the dominant prairie and fen species recorded. The fraction of total land area in these vegetation types went from 17% in 1802 to about 0.7% in 1984. This study illustrates the potential of using the original surveyors' records to locate existing remnants of these vegetation types. en_US
