The Prairie Naturalist fills an important role as the avenue of communication of research on the North American grasslands and their biota. Articles include research topics such as investigating Great Plains community and landscape ecologies, species-specific population dynamics, mammalogy, ornithology, invertebrate zoology, herpetology, ichthyology, botany, animal behavior, infectious diseases, and biostatistics. The Prairie Naturalist offers timely technical information for researchers, educators, students, and the interested public. Published biannually, the journal reaches subscribers throughout the United States and Canada, as well as libraries in Europe and Asia. About 10% of each volume is devoted to shorter and less comprehensive communications (i.e., notes) and book reviews. Manuscripts containing original material not submitted elsewhere are considered for publication; all manuscripts are reviewed by specialists in relevant fields. The Prairie Naturalist publishes reviews of scholarly books from multiple disciplines that focus on the natural history and ecology of The Great Plains.
