Title:An Ecological Study of Prairie and Forest Invertebrates
Author(s):Adams, C.C.
Subject(s):forest invertebrates
prairie invertebrates
State of Illinois
Abstract:In four generations a true wilderness has been transformed into the present prosperous State of Illinois. This transformation has been so complete that in many parts of the state nearly all of the planet and animal life of the original prairie and forest has been completely exterminated. Between the degree of change which has taken place in any given area and the suitability of that area for agriculture there has been an almost direct relation. Fortunately, however, for the preservation of prairie and forest animals, the state is not homogeneous, some areas being too hilly, rocky, or sandy for prosperous agriculture.
