    Candace Savage&;s acclaimed and beautifully written guide to the ecology of the prairies, now revised and updated.

    Praise for the previous edition of Prairie: 
    &;Impelled with its sense of the miraculous in nature.&;&;Globe and Mail

    This revised edition of Prairie features a new preface along with updated research on the effects of climate change on an increasingly vulnerable landscape.

    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.
