It also offers new information on: conservation of threatened species, including the black-tailed prairie dog and farmland birds, grassland loss and conservation, the health of rivers and the water table, the effects of neonicotinoid insecticides on prairie wetlands, the benefits of regenerative agriculture. Illustrated with elegant black-and-white line drawings and maps, this award-winning tome continues to be a highly readable guide to understanding the ecology, geological history, biodiversity, and resilience of the prairies."--
