Biodiversity of Illinois, Volume III: Prairie and Edge Habitats CD-ROM

This CD-ROM is designed to provide supplemental information about Illinois prairie and edge species and habitats for the educator and student.

Five hundred five Illinois prairie and edge species representing mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, invertebrates, plants, fungi, protists and bacteria are accessible in a field guide format.

At least one full-color image of each species is shown, although most have several photo options.

Along with the photographic images, each species screen offers information about features, behavior, habitat, Illinois range, sounds (if available), classification and status (endangered/threatened; native/exotic).

The sounds produced by 90 species are available for the listener. Sounds are also described in the text section for the hearing impaired.

Descriptions and photographs of Illinois prairie and edge habitats are included.

A description of biodiversity, what it is and why it is important is available as are resources and references and a section on scientific names. Prairie burning is explained in the biodiversity section.

This CD-ROM is available to teachers in Illinois by written request on school letterhead and at lending locations statewide.
