NEAR CHENEY — A great field experiment is under way. Songs of Eastern meadowlarks and blue-gray gnatcatchers can be heard as wind brushes past prairie grass.
Dragonflies and grasshoppers flit along a well-worn trail as Christopher Rogers and Don Distler drive a pickup around 330 acres known as Wichita State University's Biology Field Station Ninnescah Reserve.
The birds, the grasses, the insects are signs the experiment is working.
