dc.description.abstractA diversity of early successional plant communities within the agricultural landscape provides food and cover for a variety of wildlife species, including bobwhite quail, grassland birds and cottontail rabbits. However, this type of habitat is in short supply on many farms in Missouri. This publication describes the process used to create and manage early successional vegetation at the University of Missouri Bradford Research Center (MU BREC), located near Columbia. The framework for making habitat management decisions is described, and the process used for planning and implementing management practices is highlighted. This report serves as a case study showcasing wildlife habitat practices landowners can implement that benefit bobwhite quail and a variety of other wildlife and that can be designed to complement ongoing farm management, agronomic and economic goals and objectives.en_US
