Iowa’s tallgrass prairies, the once dominant vegetation, were replaced by crops so that currently, only 0.1% of native prairies remain and approximately 80% of the land is dedicated to corn (Zea mays L.) and soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) production. This dramatic land use change has caused severe hydrological alterations (i.e. surface runoff, sediment and nutrient export) affecting the productivity and water quality of the region. In the last years, incorporation of prairie vegetation within… Expand
