Research Products from 1997-2006
Before the research program focused on biodiversity monitoring and understanding how threats affect how we manage the landscape, other projects were completed, primarily inventory work, and All of these projects were completed under the auspices of the NY Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell.
