Ecological Studies at the Woodworth Study Area

Map of North Dakota

A Symposium organized by Ned H. Euliss Jr.
Northern Prairie Science Center, Jamestown, North Dakota


This special session of the 88th Annual meeting of the North Dakota Academy of Science was organized for three purposes. First, we thought it a good way to collect in one volume a "snapshot," if you will, of the current and past work conducted at the Woodworth Study Area (WSA) since 1965. Second, we thought it useful to emphasize the scope of the work at the WSA, particularly with regard to the range of ecological issues that have been evaluated and that are now under investigation. Finally, we thought this an excellent way to illustrate, by example, the positive aspects of long-term collaborative studies, especially in an era when perseverance to see long-term work through, and the budgets to maintain such studies, are in short supply.
