The Inventory and Monitoring Program is organized into networks based on biogeographic regions. For each park within Alaska, the I&M Program conducts twelve natural resource inventories. These inventories provide baseline information from which additional monitoring activities are conducted. Long-term monitoring efforts are focused on carefully selected resources, called "vital signs" by the I&M program to adequately reflect their importance to the overall ecosystem health, that increase overall understanding of natural resources and systems in parks and inform park managers of the status and trends of those resources.
