Abstract:
The loss of native grassland habitat in the Northern Plains of the United States is prompting concern about the effect of farm programs on rangeland-to-cropland conversion. Native grassland, that is, rangeland that has never been tilled, is breeding habitat for many species of migratory birds and further loss could reduce bird populations and related benefits (e.g. hunting).
