      Introduction. The Prairie Pothole Region of north-central North America (central Iowa, U.S.A. to central Alberta, Canada; , km 2) contains one of the largest wetland areas (40, km 2) in the ically, most conservation activities have focused on sustaining extensive, high quality duck habitat because of the associated recreational value of duck-hunting across the U.S. Emond Prairie Pothole Restoration Project near Malta, Montana, A ditch was excavated to drain this prairie pothole in the past. This changed the whole landscape of the prairie pothole, drying up acres of the acre wetland. We partnered with Montana Land Reliance to restore the prairie pothole. We filled the drainage [ ].

      A multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional project that examines the possibility that the response of prairie wetland ecosystems to climate change may be non-linear or threshold in nature. Objective: Wetland ecosystems of the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) in the northern Great Plains are extremely vulnerable to .   Prairie Pothole Wetland.

      The area of native prairie known as the Great Plains once extended from Canada to the Mexican border and from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains to western Indiana and Wisconsin. Today the declines in prairie landscape types, estimated to be as high as 99%, exceed those of any other major ecosystem in North America. The overwhelming loss of landscape and accompanying loss of species. The projects broad geographic scope was defined as the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) of North America, which extends across approximately , km of five US states (Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana) and three Canadian .

The Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) is an expansive area of the northern Great Plains that contains thousands of shallow wetlands known as potholes are the result of glacier activity in the Wisconsin glaciation, which ended ab years decaying ice sheet left behind depressions formed by the uneven deposition of till in ground moraines.

The Prairie Pothole Region extends from Canada south and east, through parts of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa.

In Iowa, many of these areas are found in the Des Moines Lobe, an area that spans the north-central part of the state, ending around the Polk-Story County line – and the vast majority of them are farmed.
