Data & Product Disclaimer

Northern Prairie intends to provide quality data of interest to the biological community. In doing so we are doing our best to ensure the accuracy of the data we present.

Much of the data we present are drawn from authoritative publications. However, since few publications exist in electronic format, we often have had to create new data sets based on illustrations in the original publications. This is a laborious process that could introduce discrepancies during transcription. In the event of such discrepancies, the original publication should be referenced.

Should you find errors in the actual publications themselves, please contact the author of the publication in question.

If you have any questions or comments regarding the data at this site, please contact us at
