A special feature in the April issue of the National Geographic magazine explores the tallgrass prairie ecosystem in the heartland of the United States.

Written by Verlyn Klinkenborg, "Splendor of the Grass" is centered around the Flint Hills of Kansas, home of the Konza Prairie Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program--although Konza itself is not mentioned by name. The special feature includes a photo gallery (the prints can be purchased), a downloadable map of the area, the personal reflections of the writers in the form of field notes, as well as additional information via Web links and bibliographies.
