Abstract

Terracing is a soil conservation practice that has been promoted throughout the Midwest since the days of the Dust Bowl era. The benefits for controlling soil erosion are well-documented, but the values to wildlife are much less clear. This study documented the numbers and species of birds and small mammals as well as the number of small mammal dens in southwest Iowa terraces.
