Abstract

The tall-grass prairie ecosystem once domi­ nated much of the Midwest; Iowa was in the center of this immense grassland. A diverse birdlife used the abundant prairie pothole wet­ lands and upland tall-grass cover. Although early agriculture produced a landscape that briefly increased wildlife diversity, the steady shift toward larger farms has resulted in re­ duced wildlife habitat.
