Attached are some graphs I made from different experiments, all of which included the model running for at least 200 weeks. My experiments ranged from adding blocks of prairie to adding multiple corridors of prairie.

The least effective way was with the single block of prairie added, because no corridors were used in that situation. Sincerely, Steve Avery...
