Clone size of Andropogon gerardii Vitman (big bluestem) at Konza Prairie, Kansas



American Midland Naturalist 147(2): 295-304

Clone size of plants of Andropogon gerardii from Konza Prairie Biological Station, Manhattan, Kansas was estimated from spatial patterns of genetic variation, using proteins detected by starch gel electrophoresis and DNA content (ploidy) measured by flow cytometry. Unique multi-locus protein banding patterns and differences in ploidy were used to exclude plants as members of the same clone. Individual clones averaged about 2m in diameter and areas of prairie of 100m2 were calculated to contain an average of 31.8 genetic individuals. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.
