Editor's Note: This is one of an occasional series of stories about attractions in the Hoosier National Forest. Information for this story on forest barrens was written by botanist Kirk Larson.
TELL CITY - Barrens are globally rare natural communities that often contain spectacular displays of wildflowers and grasses more often seen in prairie settings. Ecologists characterize barrens by their poor, shallow or excessively drained soils, often occurring over bedrock or other substrates that experience drought conditions during at least part of the year.
