This article talks about how certain elements affected the prairie community. By using a Robel pole to measure the density and volume of vegetation, and a PAR Light Meter to measure the light saturation. There were two sets of data taken one n June and one in July, this gave a range of measurements at different stages in growth. Different elements such as age, fire, and bison were looked at, but it was decided that fire and bison had the most affect. The data collected was averaged to find p-values, which told whether the data collected supported the original objectives.
