Wichita State University has acquired 157 acres of land in south-central Kansas to study the prairie.

The Gerber Reserve outside Kingman is one of three sites under Wichita State's Field Station to be used by the Department of Biological Sciences for research.

Assistant professor of biology Greg Houseman says the reserve will be used for research on restoring and managing Kansas prairie ecosystems.

Houseman said the property has features that allow for studying low-productivity grasslands common across central Kansas.
