To inform park managers and advance science, we document the methods and results of our inventory and monitoring work. This can take a variety of forms. We publish technical reports that summarize our protocols and data findings through the National Park Service’s Natural Resources Publication Management report series. This series includes annual monitoring reports, inventories, as well as network monitoring plans and protocols. We also publish our results in scientific journals or in collaboration with other agencies and partners. For people seeking a more concise, less technical format, we create resource briefs, newsletters, and short articles. Find a publication or explore online data visualizers through the links below.
