Prairie Conservation will interest anyone concerned about the current condition and preservation of grasslands, wetlands, and associated wildlife species in the Great Plains of North America. The book contains twenty chapters plus a summary by Paul G. Risser. Forty-four authors contributed to the book with over 700 literature citations. The well-written text is accompanied by forty-six figures and tables. A foreword by Nebraska Governor E. Benjamin Nelson discusses a program called the Great Plains Partnership (GPP), an experiment in environmental problem solving that will strive to bring all stakeholders together by working with and through private landowners.
