Multiple Species Inventory and Monitoring Program at the ISU Been and North Woodruff Farms
Is Version Of
The Iowa Multiple Species Inventory and Monitoring (MSIM) program is a standardized statewide survey of Iowa’s wildlife with a goal of providing a basic inventory of wildlife species in Iowa. The program was developed in response to a concern regarding the lack of information on Iowa’s species of greatest conservation need (SGCN) listed in the Iowa Wildlife Action Plan. The two ISU farms sampled were the ISU Been (corn) Farm and ISU North Woodruff (soybean) Farm, each consisting of seven points arranged in a hexagonal shape 200 m apart.
