Temporal Impacts of Changing Agricultural Practices, Rural Populations, and Landowner Gender on South Dakota Waterfowl Habitats and Populations

With the advent of thousands of non-native settlers into the northern Great Plains regions in the decades of the late 1800s and peaking in early decades of the 1900s, the landscape ecology and the native flora and fauna of the native grasslands, wetlands, and woodlands have been impacted in various ways. Our goal is to briefly describe some of the temporal, social, technological, and landownership changes that have fostered several of the more obvious ecological impacts that affect key wildlife and waterfowl species that currently provide recreational and/ or economic incentives for residents or destination visitors or their combinations. Some recommendations for future large-scale information needs will be offered for consideration.
