Summary

This project proposes development of a spatial decision support system (DSS) designed to address an identified major conservation goal of the Eastern Tallgrass Prairie and Big Rivers Landscape Conservation Cooperative (ETPBR LCC), in collaboration with adjacent LCCs in the Midwestern U.S. Specifically, the DSS will be designed to identify select geographic areas (watersheds) within the Mississippi River Basin (MRB) where the application of conservation practices (e.g., planting perennial grasses, drainage management systems) can simultaneously (1) reduce nutrient export to the Gulf of Mexico hypoxia zone and (2) enhance habitat and conservation for grassland birds and riparian species (also avian migration corridors), and where (3) [...]
