    A Landscape Approach to Grassland Bird Conservation in the Prairie Pothole Region of the Northern Great Plains Chairperson: David E. Naugle Abstract Prairie is one of the most imperiled ecosystems, and grassland birds have experienced steeper and more consistent declines than any other group of birds in North America. Rocky Mountain Front Vegetation Information. The Montana Rocky Mountain Front is a landscape of national importance, noteworthy for not only its scenic beauty, but also for the high-quality and diverse wetland, prairie, riparian and montane habitats found there in abundance.

    A prairie is an area of flat, predominantly treeless course grassland, especially in a large plain with deep, fertile, soil. It is a region inhabited by extensive grasses and forbs and lacks the presence of large vegetation. Stream and Riparian Restoration Stretching like fingers into the prairie, prairie streams once supported a diverse array of plants and wildlife, including nearly half of all prairie birds. However, over the last century, much of this habitat and its diversity have been lost.

It is the most widely spread major forage grass in Montana. It is the dominant grass on all upland sites within the 10" to 14" precipitation zone. Sandy soils are good places to find this grass. This system is found throughout the eastern two-thirds of Montana where wetlands, sand prairie, lakes, and potholes are absent.

How closely the vegetation of restored wetlands resembles that of comparable natural wetlands is a function of the probability of propagules of wetland species reaching reflooded wetlands and how similar environmental conditions in the restored wetland are those in the natural wetlands.

Three years after reflooding, we examined the vegetation composition, Cited by: Prairie, level or rolling grassland, especially that found in central North sing amounts of rainfall, from cm (about 40 inches) at the forested eastern edge to less than 30 cm (about 12 inches) at the desertlike western edge, affect the species composition of the prairie grassland.
