A multi species approach to managing the effects of weather and land use on upland game birds

Duration

August 2017 - July 2019

Narrative

Management for upland gamebirds is often focused on managing habitat for a single species. The goal of our project is to determine optimal ways to manage habitat across several upland gamebirds in Kansas. For this project, we are partnering with the Lesser Prairie-Chicken Initiative (through USDA NRCS) and Pheasants Forever. Our research can be used to better inform placement and type of habitat management for multiple species of gamebirds.
