Biodiversity in working landscapes: Help us conserve declining grassland birds in restored Midwestern grasslands
Though grasslands are increasingly scarce in the Midwest, there are pockets remaining on private lands grazed by cattle. Restoration thus requires balancing the needs of birds with the needs of landowners. To address this, we propose to research habitat quality for grassland birds in a working landscape. Using field data, we study grassland bird abundance, prey abundance, and nest site selection in response to invasive management and human decisions driving landscape changes.

Monitoring carbon sequestration and biological diversity in tropical landscapes altered by human activity
Tropical forests store 20-40% of terrestrial carbon (C) and contain 90% of all tree species. Land-use change...
