Dunlop Meadow

The Dunlop meadow is a geneBrooktondalerally well-drained site with only moderate fertility that will support a large variety of common meadow species. The rolling topography provides variation in soil conditions (for example, there is a drier, gravelly knoll) and hence provides variation in plant species composition. It is a rather young meadow at this point in time and is impressively large, an important characteristic for nesting of some bird species. The large size also has allowed Cornell Botanic Gardens to implement several meadow management treatments on the site to enhance diversity, while using common farm management techniques in maintaining the meadow.
