"Pristine Kansas prairie isn't one kind of grass, or kind of flower. It's hundreds. Meadow rose and wavy-leafed thistle. Bluestem and sunflower. Leadplant and milkweed. The variety does more than look pretty. It insures against biological calamity. In hot weather, some species wilt-others flourish. When insects and disease strike, some suffer-others thrive. Here's how the prairie bears adversity: diversity."
