This past summer, August 12-14, 2013, the National Wildlife Federation and Kansas State University teamed up to have the 2nd America’s Grassland Conference in Manhattan, Kansas. I attended this conference and presented some preliminary work on some ant assemblages in the Fort Worth Nature Center, Fort Worth, Texas. I am completing that project this spring as part of my dissertation.
The proceedings from the conference, America’s Grasslands: The Future of Grasslands in a Changing Landscape, is now available. A summary of my preliminary work is found on page 41.
The conference was wonderful. I have several posts concerning this conference:
1) the 2013 America’s Grassland Conference: Synopsis and Notes
