2021 Update: Random points in remnants

In 2021, Team Echinacea established 378 random points across 27 prairie remnants in western Minnesota. After delineating the boundaries of remnant prairie patches of interest, we established between 6 and 24 random points within each patch (number of points roughly proportional to patch area). These points serve as sampling locations to help Team Echinacea characterize fire effects on the reproduction of plant species like Hesperostipa spartea and Andropogon gerardii. These points may also serve as infrastructure for future research projects.
