On the High Plains of Oklahoma grasses are typically shorter in stature interspersed with various annual and perennial forbs as well as woody shrubs such as Sand Sagebrush. Species richness is high, but density and ground cover is typically less than the Tallgrass Prairie. Areas like this support a wide range of wildlife species including the Northern Bobwhite Quail, Wild Turkey, White-tailed Deer, Mule Deer, and the ever-popular Lesser Prairie Chicken, just to name a few.
