Making room for prairie STRIPs in Iowa’s cornbelt
A Field Talk interview with Lisa Schulte Moore (Land Sharing/Sparing #1)
Lisa Schulte Moore, a professor of natural resource ecology and management at Iowa State University, explains how Science-based Trials of Rowcrops Integrated with Prairies (STRIPs) help farms, waterways, and wildlife.
Listen to the interview, and find show notes and links to entities mentioned in this week’s episode, on the Field Talk homepage.
This is the first interview in a series exploring “land-sparing” and “land-sharing” strategies to conserve wildness and a rich tapestry of species in our human dominated world.
Schulte Moore discussed this project with a happy hour crowd at the Aster in Minneapolis during ESA’s annual meeting last August, as the pilot speaker at our inaugural Science Cafe.
