Maine Ecological Reserve Fact Sheets

Research Opportunities

One of the key purposes for designation of Ecological Reserves was to serve "as a site for ongoing scientific research, long-term environmental monitoring, and education." In addition to the existing monitoring program, the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry strongly encourages use of the Reserves for other applied research on forest structure and dynamics, rare plant species, wildlife, water quality, or other related issues.
