Fields of Grass & Wildflowers

Scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources 
found that corn and perennial grassland fields in the southern part of Wisconsin provide biomass for 
bioenergy production and bird habitat.  In fact, fields with plentiful grasses and wildflowers supported 
more than three times as many bird species as cornfields, including 10 species needing great conservation 
found only in the grasslands.
