A study was made of nineteen relict grassland areas scattered throughout the Great Plains. The study was made to determine basal cover, percentage composition and per cent frequency of the grass and sedge species, and also the soil texture present on these areas. Areas were scattered from Miami, Texas to Shelly, Montana . The study was conducted during the summer of 1956. Vegetation was sampled by the square root method as described by Voigt and Weaver (1941). The hydrometer method was used to determine the soil texture. Texture was sampled at depths of six and 24 inches.
