The Prairie Pothole Region

This photograph provides an aerial view of glacially formed, depressional wetlands embedded in a matrix of native grassland and agriculture, located in the Prairie Pothole Region of central North America. Recent research based on possible future climate scenarios suggests that these wetlands and their ability to support breeding waterfowl will be altered. Credit: J. Ringleman, Ducks Unlimited.
