Nesting Research
Every year, DU performs nesting research in different areas throughout the PPR. Nesting research allows DU scientists to learn more about how habitat changes can affect breeding populations. In many areas of native grasslands, the nest density can be as high as 100 per square mile. 

Many waterfowl species have been reported as arriving in the U.S. PPR for the 2011 breeding season.
