Texas blackland prairies

WWF Abstract

Mima mounds are piles of soil up to 46 feet (14 m) across at the base and more than 3.3 feet (1 m) high. How they originated is not clear. These mounds are found in the eastern portion of this region. Distinct zones of plants and different habitats can be found on a single undisturbed mound when vernal pools form between the mounds, and then dry out, creating microhabitats.
