Mead's milkweed (Asclepias meadii) population dynamics University of Kansas Ecosystems Research Group, University of Kansas Field Station

Mead's milkweed is a rare plant of the tallgrass prairie that currently is found primarily in eastern Kansas and Missouri.  Most populations are very small, but the University of Kansas Field Station manages two prairies (Rockefeller Prairie, Anderson County Prairie Reserve) that have some of the largest populations in Kansas.  Since 1988, studies at the Field Station have explored the population dynamics, herbivory, and seedling establishment of this species, which often is used as an indicator of prairie quality.  This research has led to a deeper understanding of the ecology of Mead's mi
