National parks support a wide variety of research by both park scientists and scientists from outside institutions. In Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, scientists conduct research that includes the ecology of specific plants and animals, ecosystem level interactions, climate change, geology, hydrology, glaciology, fire effects, visitor experience, and cultural resources. Park managers depend on the latest scientific information to help guide decisions about park management.
