Description

One of the 2010 funding priorities is to support the development of background information on invertebrates in North Dakota to allow for the inclusion of invertebrates in upcoming revisions of the Wildlife Action Plan. This project would help provide historical and current distribution and abundance information on grassland insects. The project would provide a good baseline of data on grassland insects in Eastern North Dakota. This information will be highly important for proposed revisions to the Wildlife Action Plan to include invertebrates.
