Grassland stream research: Konza Prairie LTER research includes numerous studies on the ecology of grassland streams. Kings Creek is a part of the USGS Hydrologic Benchmark Network, and is one of the most intensively studies grassland streams on Earth. Four branches of Kings Creek have been instrumented with gauging stations (as shown here) that are used to monitor stream hydrology and nutrient export. 5/2006.
