dc.description.abstractMany Saskatchewan drivers are familiar with potholes on the Prairies. For the past two years, University of Regina Biology Graduate student Melissa Mushanski has spent a lot of time in Prairie Potholes. Not the ones that infuriate drivers this time of year, but the thousands of shallow wetlands that dot the Prairie provinces of Canada, and the Great Plains of the U.S. They are home to willows, known as willow rings, and recently willow rings have been targeted as a renewable source of biomass for bioenergy operations. Melissa is studying what impact the harvesting of willows in the potholes is having on the bird population.
