About this book

The Great Plains were once characterized by vast expanses of grass, complex interdependence among species, and dynamic annual changes due to weather, waterways, and fire. It is now generally accepted that less than one per cent of the original tall-grass prairie remains. Habitat fragmentation, the loss of natural predator-prey associations, changes in species composition, and various commercial practices continue to threaten grassland biodiversity. Recently scholars and conservationists have discussed opportunities for large-scale restoration projects in the Great Plains, but they have provided few details.

Daniel Licht offers here a bold new approach to restoring and conserving the grassland ecosystem. In describing hypothetical reserves, he explains how they could help conserve grassland biodiversity, reduce federal expenditures on agriculture, increase recreational opportunities, and sustain rural economies outside the reserves.

Media reviews
Working from an impressive, sweeping, and thorough array of facts, Licht builds a bedrock-solid argument for restoration of our country's heartland. America ought to read it, and America ought to do it. Richard Manning, author of Grassland "Ecology and Economics of the Great Plains is a well worked out proposal for the midsection of the country to restore its biodiversity while simultaneously improving the regional and national economy." Deborah Popper, The College of Staten Island
