This bibliography was prepared for scientists concerned with the problems of defining and measuring biotic parameters, and of sampling populations in grassland communities. References on the applications of statistics to these problems, or on underlying statistical theory, are found in a great variety of publications, some limited in distribution. This is a collection of such references with abstracts and should be useful in designing new studies of grassland problems. Literature of the world through 1963 was searched; some references were undoubtedly omitted, although not deliberately.
