Curtis. Overview. Curtis Prairie at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum is the site of the world’s first ecological restoration project. Begun in by Dr. Theodore Sperry, with supervision and support from Aldo Leopold and William Longenecker, the project has been ongoing for more than seventy years and has yielded a wealth of research data about the dynamics of tallgrass prairie.

In John T. Curtis' book "The Vegetation of Wisconsin," he identifies five major plant communities (southern forests, northern forests, grasslands, savanna and shrub communities, and lesser communities), each with sub-categories.
