Human perturbations have altered the health and sustainability of modern ecosystems. In the Prairie Pothole Region of North America, an area of considerable value to wildlife and agriculture, the primary human perturbation has been land development to facilitate agriculture production. In response to concern regarding the fate of fish and wildlife habitat and various ecosystem functions (e.g. water quality, sediment and chemical infiltration, erosion, nutrient transport, floodwater retention, ground-water recharge and biological diversity), private and governmental entities have implemented numerous conservation programs to restore basic ecosystem services within the modern agricultural landscape.
