Could Prairie Chickens Come Booming Back?

Nature Conservancy - Science

Prairie chickens were once so abundant in the Great Plains that they were hunted for the market and shipped by the trainload to New York City. Could prairie restoration bring them booming back?

Recovery: Prairie Reprise

Nature Conservancy - Science

America has plowed, developed and otherwise destroyed or degraded vast expanses of native prairie. For generations prairies were seen as deficient in their lack of trees and dangerous in their flammability. At least we’re no longer anti-prairie. Bison on Ordway Prairie.

Why Is Biodiversity Important to Ecosystems?

Greentumble

California has prairies, deserts, lakes, forests and beach. The biosphere, the totality of life is a. membrane of organisms wrapped around the earth so thin that it cannot be seen edgewise from the space shuttle.

Biomass Energy Advantages and Disadvantages

Examples of biomass that can be used to produce fuel include corn, soy, switchgrass and other native prairie grasses, industrial hemp**, algae, solid waste, wood chips, animal manure, sewage, and mulch. Biomass is everywhere.
