Abstract
Biological field stations are expected to have an increasingly important role in ecological research because of mounting environmental concerns and the growing importance of ecological research networks. Kansas has several well-known field stations that occur along an east-west precipitation gradient, but these sites are primarily located in the northern half of the state. In this paper, we describe how the sites comprising the Wichita State University Biological Field Station represent important ecoregions in the southern portion of Kansas, which could be utilized to enhance research networks in the region. For each site, we describe the relevant historical and environmental characteristics and provide some examples of the long-term research projects that are currently underway.
