The Natural Resource Publication Series produces peer reviewed reports that are of interest and use to National Park Service staff, natural resource managers, scientists, and the public. The series has two types of reports, which differ based on the level of analysis and data interpretation, and peer review:
Natural Resource Report series - information and analysis about natural resources on NPS lands
Natural Resource Data series - timely release of basic data sets and data summaries that may be preliminary in nature
A third series, the Natural Resource Technical Report series, was discontinued in 2014.
