The landscape within the general vicinity of MPNP has changed considerably since the 1960s.
Reintroduction efforts began on gravel hill prairie slopes at MPNP considered favorable for the growth of Lakeside daisy with 100 plants each at Sites A, B, and C on September 29, 1988.
Seedlings were not reported at MPNP by researchers until 1991.
These losses, combined with the loss of the Site B and C populations left Site A as the only surviving population of Lakeside daisy at MPNP.
The causes for the failure of the reintroduction efforts at MPNP are not well understood.
MPNP was also considered the least suitable of the three Illinois reintroduction sites based on the dense cover of native vegetation and the moderate to severe woody encroachment (DeMauro 1994).
Lakeside daisy reintroduction efforts at MPNP began with 330 plants and 90 seeds.
In effect, the interim Constitution "supplied the blueprint for transition" to "a non-racial, non-sexist multi-party democracy with three tiers of government and a justiciable Bill of Rights." (230) The interim Constitution included a bill of rights (231) because the MPNP
recognized that the best way of ensuring the interests of all South Africans was through the protection of individual rights.
