Abstract
Vegetation surveys showed that bluegrass and mixed prairie types of grassland were present on the Black Hills National Forest, S. Dakota. Moisture regime was the single main factor in determining grassland types; the moister sites were dominated by bluegrasses, the drier sites by prairie vegetation. Grassland of the bluegrass type was dominated by Kentucky bluegrass, sedges, timothy and Achillea spp., the prairie type was dominated by blue grama, Stipa comata, big bluestem and little bluestem.
