Praise for The Ecology and Management of Prairies in the Central United States
"Chris Helzer's book is the first I've seen that plainly defines the contents of prairies and then tells you how to care for them. Smart, well researched, practical, and to the point, this book is one-stop shopping for anyone who cares about grasslands, now or in the future."—Joel Sartore, contributing photographer, National Geographic Magazine, and author, Rare: America's Endangered Species
