Abstract

The groundlayer of an abandoned field was found similar to that in nearby foothill woodland, presumably the original vegetation of the field. By 1965, 27 years after abandonment, the annual species in the field were characteristic of ungrazed ranges. Thirteen perennial herb species were found in the field by 1944, 6 years after abandonment, and 26 were present by 1966. Although some of the perennial herbs were abundant, many required intensive searching to detect their presence. Woody plants were present but not abundant by 1966.
