Radiotelemetry was used to evaluate Lesser Prairie-Chicken (Tympanuchus pallidicinctus) nesting response to herbicidal conversion of sand shinnery oak (Quercus havardii) rangeland to grassland. Hens selected nest sites in residual grasses within lightly grazed sand shinnery oak habitat with >75% vertical screening in the first 0.33 m and 50% overhead cover.
