Introduction. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service's strong commitment to science-based land management planning and decisions is clearly illustrated by the development of the Tongass National Forest land management plan (TLMP) of and the follow-on studies that were designed to fill information gaps that would assist managers in revising the plan in the by: 3.

Alaska is the best place in the country to view our national symbol, the American Bald Eagle. Alaska's shorelines are home to an abundance of marine life, including stellar sea lions, walrus. Novem Stanford scholar finds resiliency in Alaskan forests ravaged by climate change.

In Fairbanks, the state virology lab remains busy during a quiet time of pandemic. The Alaska State Virology Laboratory on the UAF campus has remained busy.

More than just a number book, this is also a science book that introduces the concept of biomes. These communities of living organisms defined by a specific environment—such as the creatures of the deciduous forest, tundra, and savanna—are vividly described in imaginative, descriptive adjectives: “Staring, rippling, jetting spots.

Alaska Park Science: Scientific Studies on Climate Change in Alaska’s National Parks - Alaska Geographic Published twice a year for the National Park Service, this journal details the most up-to-date information on climate change and its effect on Alaska's wildlands.

Much of the research on which this book is based results from the Bonanza Creek Long-Term Ecological Research Program. Here is a synthesis of the substantial literature on Alaska's boreal forest that should be accessible to professional ecologists, students, and the interested : F.

Stuart Chapin. Northern spring thaw begins with sea ice at a record low. Nasa scientists say the world has lost an expanse of ice larger than Mexico since Global sea ice at lowest area ever recorded.

Scientists mystified by a sudden fall in sea ice around Antarctica, but. Forest Plans of North America presents case studies of contemporary forest management plans developed for forests owned by federal, state, county, and municipal governments, communities, families, individuals, industry, investment organizations, conservation organizations, and others in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

The book provides. The Ocean Alaska Science and Learning Center (OASLC), located at Kenai Fjords National Park, focuses research on coastal and marine ecosystems in part­nership with the Alaska SeaLife Center (e.g., harbor seal research) and others such as the Smithsonian Institution.

Jill Johnstone was a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Saskatchewan, where she started the Northern Plant Ecology Lab (NPEL) which she still runs. She primarily conducts research on plant ecology and environmental biology with an emphasis on how boreal forest and tundra are responding to rapid rates of climate mater: Ph.D.

University of Alaska, M.S. University of British Columbia, B.A. Middlebury College. Conservation Science Webinar Series. The first of these is an overview of the work that my colleagues and I have done on sea otters and kelp forest ecosystems in the North Pacific Ocean over the past 40 years.

I will explain the critical role that sea otters play in maintaining kelp forests and describe some of what we have learned about. Alaska Department of Fish and Game P.O. Box W. 8th Street Juneau, AK Office Locations. She is a Conservation Scientist with the Wildlife Conservation Society in the Climate Adaptation Program and an Adjunct Professor in Earth System Science at Stanford University.

Her first book, In Search of The Canary Tree, draws from years of research on the effects of climate change in Alaska's coastal temperate forests and communities. A new study addresses forest productivity trends in Alaska, highlighting a shift in biomes caused by a warming climate.

The findings linked satellite observations with an. The following list of Alaska Native inventors and scientists begins to document Alaska Natives with deep historical and ecological knowledge about system-wide health, knowledge that in many cases precedes and exceeds discoveries published in the scientific literature.

For more than century, Alaska Native naturalists have entered into collaborative relationships with scientists working in the. Magnus Group warmly welcomes you to its successional “6th Edition of Global Conference on Plant Science and Molecular Biology (GPMB )” occurring during Septemberin Paris, France with the theme of Accentuate Innovations and Emerging Novel Research in Plant Sciences.

Plant Science Conference provides a better understanding of broad topics that are happening in the. Their scientific denials place vulnerable communities, like Alaska Natives, at great risk, he wrote. And just like that, Clement became a voice of the resistance.

With the need to transition to a more mature and stable economic base this project endeavors to provide research, education and outreach for existing or potentially new small businesses in the wood product field.

Research for alternatives to fossil fuels is urgent.

Projected populations for Alaska and boroughs/census areas, as well as trends, composition, and distribution of the Alaska population. American Community Survey (ACS) Demographic, social, economic, and housing characteristics for Alaska and its boroughs/census.

Project Methods Goal 1: The study of extractive compounds from timber and non-timber forest biomass native to Alaska will be undertaken in three geographical regions of the State.

In southeast Alaska, softwood species chosen are Yellow Cedar, Hemlock, Red Cedar, and Sitka Spruce. In South-central Alaska non-timber forest products having traditional uses and harvest value for food will be.

Science for Alaska’s changing landscape. The Alaska-Yukon Region of the Circumboreal Vegetation Map. The circumboreal vegetation mapping (CBVM) project is an international collaboration among vegetation scientists to create a new vegetation map of the boreal region at a million scale with a common legend and mapping protocol.

This research resulted in a Master’s degree in Wildlife Science from Texas A&M University and provided an alternative management plan for cougars in Big Bend National Park.

Between andshe was the project leader researching the effects of wolf reestablishment on the cougar population in Yellowstone National Park.

The boreal forest, a swath of spruce-dominated woods from Interior Alaska to the Atlantic Ocean, might be in for a big change. "Results suggest that a widespread shift from coniferous to deciduous vegetation began around and will continue over the next several decades," wrote UAF researcher Dan Mann in a paper published in.

Research. My general interests are in evolution, ecology, and conservation biology. My focus is on understanding the evolutionary and ecological dynamics of natural populations using demographic and genetic models, molecular genetic data, and field data.

I have long-standing interest in combining population genomics and demographic information to infer important evolutionary and demographic.Environmental Science Research Topics Glaciology The Mendenhall Glacier, within 10 miles from UAS, is our gateway to the Juneau Icefield.
