About this product
- DescriptionThis book chronicles a 20-year Midwest oak savanna restoration: how the landowner practitioners worked with their district forester, researched land history, restored prescribed fire, and how restoration increased the diversity of plants, animals, and fungi. Before early European settlement thirty million acres of oak savanna stretched from Minnesota and Wisconsin south to the Texas hill country. Now temperate-zone oak savannas are one of the world's most endangered ecosystems. Classified G-1, globally endangered only .02% remain. However, many Midwest oak savannas are merely degraded and can be restored. Unlike native prairies that have been completely lost to agriculture or development, woodlands that have t been plowed or seeded with n-native pasture grasses will sustain portions of their native plant diversity.
- Author BiographyWilliam and Sibylla Brown have been restoring their 200 acre oak savanna in south central Iowa for 20 years. By trial and error, by observing and tracking the response of plants, fungi, and animals they have successfully restored their overstocked woodland to a fully functioning oak savanna ecosystem. This book chronicles their efforts.
