This report documents a project started in 1972-73 to determine the bioenvironmental impacts of coal-fired power plants. Details of the experiments are found in the published literature and annual reports listed in the bibliography. In this text findings are generalized in chapters presenting the outline and overview of the problem, descriptions of the study sites and the SO2 exposure system, summaries and interpretation of the results of the field experiments which are then incorporated into simulation modeling exercises. Results are interpreted in the context of potential impacts of energy development in the northern Great Plains, other grasslands, and other ecosystem types.
