Research and Monitoring

Our experienced staff works closely with a variety of partners, such as government agencies, non-profit organizations, and universities, to design and implement research and monitoring projects to address knowledge gaps hindering biodiversity conservation. Examples of our work include designing and conducting studies to assess the success of conservation actions, developing surveys and citizen-science programs to assess the long-term status of species and ecosystems, and implementing research to examine species-habitat associations and causal factors of population declines. The MNFI is well prepared to work collaboratively with our partners to implement all aspects of this vital work – from study design, workforce training, and field sampling, to data compilation and archiving, statistical analysis and modeling, and final product preparation.
