Natural Resource Publication Series

The National Park Service, Natural Resource Stewardship and Science office in Fort Collins, Colorado, publishes reports on natural resource topics.

These reports are of interest and use to National Park Service staff, others working in natural resource management professions, scientists, conservation and environmental constituencies, and the public. The publication series is intended for reports produced by NPS staff that are not published in other official outlets or professional journals.

The Natural Resource Publication Series consists of two types of reports:

The two types differ based on content, level of analysis and data interpretation, and peer review. A third series, the Natural Resource Technical Report series, was discontinued in 2014.
