Abstract

Vegetation development on a dated series of abandoned lead and zinc mine dumps in southwestern Wisconsin is described. Percent cover of vegetation increases significantly over the 80-year sequence examined. Temporal change in species presence is limited, while the relative abundance of species and growth forms shifts with age of the site. Two persistent communities are identified. The open-turf community is comprised of annuals and biennials. Perennial species dominate the closed-turf community
