Abstract: Mowed meadows were established between 1939 and 1941. During this time, meadows were mowed 1-2 times a year as a hay crop, and other meadows mowed every 2-4 weeks. In 1997, mowing stopped. The authors report the dominant plants found growing under two mowing regimes. Areas with less mowing had greater species richness.
