Ecology and Conservation of Great Plains Vertebrates
By Knopf, Fritz, (editor)
Pp. xi, 320; illustrated with maps, black-and-white photos, charts and graphs. Original pictorial bright green cloth, lettered in white and black on the spine and in black on the front and rear covers, lg 8vo. This is the hardcover first edition. The Great Plains prairie, historically the largest single terrestrial ecosystem in North America, is now also its most threatened. This volume relates changes in grassland ecosystems to the ecology of vertebrate animals inhabiting the prairie. Changes in the ecological drivers of drought, fire, and grazing, which significantly affect Great Plains vertebrates, can give early warnings of ecosystem degradation. There are 11 chapters by notable authorities in the field (from the rear cover). No ownership marks and few signs of use.
