Our 2012 field season is getting underway. Keep your eyes open for new posts from our 2012 IAE/NPSO Interns, Charlotte Trowbridge and Guy Banner.
We thank the 2011 IAE/NPSO Interns, Autumn Meade, and Alex Wick, for their contributions to the Adventures in Conservation Research blog.
Autumn Meade came to us as a Wildlife Ecology graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She was looking to further her understanding of endangered and threatened species management as well as to learn about Oregon's flora, fauna and various ecosystem types. Autumn is currently in Africa with the Peace Corps.
Alex Wick is a biology graduate of Colorado College. Alex's interests include mycorrhizal relationships with plants, biking, and birds. Alex is currently working as an assistant at H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest.
The Institute for Applied Ecology (IAE) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to conserve native species and habitats through restoration, research, and education. Here, we describe some of our projects working with the Conservation Research Program at IAE. The Conservation Research Program conducts research and montioring of native species and ecosystems in order to determine population trends and effective methods for restoration and management, conducts research on invasive species in order to determine effective control methods, and develops plans for the management and restoration of native ecosystems.
