Synthesizing Lessons about Fire, Grazing, Plants, and Butterflies – The Prairie Ecologist

We just wrapped up a five year project funded by Nebraska Game and Parks through two State Wildlife Grants.  During the project, we enhanced grassland habitat for a number of wildlife species through fire and grazing management, and then measured the impacts on plant diversity and butterflies – particularly regal fritillaries.  You can see a summary of what we learned, and link to the full report, if you like.
