1995 Midwest Oak Savanna and Woodland Ecosystems Conferences - Springfield, Missouri


Dear Colleague:

Welcome to the 1995 Midwest Oak Savanna and Woodland Ecosystems Conference.

Missouri is well known for its many large surviving oak savannas and woodlands, and this is your opportunity to visit our very best. It is also your chance to learn about research and management across the midwest; from Oklahoma's cross timbers north to Minnesota, east into Indiana and Ohio and as far south as Arkansas, Tennessee, and Alabama. Wildlife, soils, endangered species, monitoring, classification, and restoration -- it's all covered at our conference.

Our conference will feature presentation of the newly completed Midwest Oak Ecosystems Recovery Plan. This Plan represents three years of successful interstate cooperation among public agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academic and research institutions to reach a scientifically based consensus on the needs of oak savannas and woodlands. We also have a presentation on Endangered Ecosystems and Recovery by internationally recognized conservation biologist Reed Noss. We are proud of the work we are doing and are glad you could join us in the beautiful Ozark mountains.
