Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Desv. is a little known native cool season grass with distribution in 23 states (Hitchcock 1971, Yatskievych 1999). It is endangered or of special concern in Indiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee (Natural Resources Conservation Service 2002, A. Heikens, personal communication 2002). It grows under full sun in prairies and under moderate shade in forest openings and prairie draws (Hitchcock 1971, Mohlenbrock and Voight 1974, Yatskievych 1999). It is found scattered in one-third of the state of Missouri; however, during a two-year search in collaboration with the Missouri Department of Conservation's "Missouri Ecotype Program" only two conservation areas were identified where this grass grows in abundance.
