dc.description.abstractFormer agricultural land in Strouds Run State Park was sampled by the quadrat method in 1962 and again in 1975. Comparisons of data show a 31% decrease in herbaceous plant cover with only a 6% increase in shrub cover, but with a shift in species composition. Stem density of trees (^2.5 cm dbh) increased by a factor of 3.2. Indexes of similarity reveal that the field has become increasingly similar to the adjacent forest during the 13-year interim between study dates.en_US
