Sedimentation of Prairie Pothole Wetlands: The Need for Integrated Research by Agricultural and Wildlife Interests

Need for Integrated Research


Future research should examine the influence of agricultural land-use practices on wetlands and wildlife in the PPR. It is not possible to sustain continental waterfowl and other wildlife populations on limited public lands. However, enhancing productivity of private lands for agricultural purposes and wildlife is possible. To insure the integration of long-term goals for agriculture and wildlife, research needs to develop management strategies that simultaneously provide for sustainable agriculture and wetlands.
