Areas of Research


BEMRP is divided into four areas of research. Human Dimensions includes research on the social context for ecosystem management, explores alternative public involvement methods, and keeps participants and the public informed about BEMRP activities and results. Vegetation Research describes current conditions and processes in forest, grassland, and aquatic communities. Fauna Research investigates the status of mammal species, aquatic insects, and migratory birds in Bitterroot ecosystems, including the impacts of noxious weeds on wildlife. Landscape Analysis Research develops geospatial, simulation, and decision models that analyze change in forest ecosystems and management options on a landscape scale.
