Abstract: Prairie Perspectives: Geographical Essays was first published in 1998. Since then a further 19 annual volumes have been produced. Papers appearing in the journal are not restricted to prairie topics or themes. Rather they reflect the research interests of prairie-based geographers. These range from the local to the international. Of the 215 papers published between 1998 and 2018, 151 (70.2%) focus wholly or in part on prairie topics, and 34 (15.8%) on international subjects. Scholarship by students as lone, first, or second authors is presented in 130 (60.5%) papers. Papers are identified in 30 geography sub-disciplines. Among these, papers in biogeography, cultural geography, weather and climate, urban geography, and tourism and recreation appear with greatest frequency. Identifiable research themes or topics include papers on flooding, water resource conservation, climate change, grasslands ecology, and urban planning. Questionnaires and fieldwork are reported on in 67 (31.2%) and 46 (21.4%) papers respectively, with results commonly supported by the use of descriptive and inferential statistics. Papers are liberally illustrated with one or more maps appearing in 158 (73.5%) papers. Photographs, bar charts, line graphs, and scatterplots are also employed widely in support of research findings.
