As you progress through the Prairie Module over the next four weeks, you will be introduced to fire disturbance and its known effects on prairie plant populations (Week 1), collect your own field data on restored prairie parcels with different season-of-burn treatments (Week 2), analyze that data (Week 3), and explore the implications and constraints of burning and other management techniques for prairie restoration and management (Week 4). Thus, each week builds on the activities from the week before and essentially addresses a different component of a scientific paper – the Introduction (Week 1), Materials & Methods (Week 2), Results (Week 3), and Discussion (Week 4). See Supporting Documents for writing assignments.
