Natural Resource Reports

The Natural Resource Report Series (NRR) is used to disseminate information and analysis about natural resources and related topics concerning lands managed by the National Park Service. The series supports the advancement of science, informed decisionmaking, and the achievement of the National Park Service mission. The series also provides a forum for presenting lengthy results that may not be accepted by publications with page limitations.

Any peer-reviewed report about natural resources on NPS lands may be published in the NRR series. Examples include:

  • Reports that present quantifiable data, data analysis, and interpretive discussion, including reports on inventories, monitoring, and other research studies

  • Procedural reports such as protocols or standard operating procedures

  • Planning reports such as monitoring or data management plans

  • Research study reports.

  • Any report with a significant focus on NPS policy or land management issues such as natural resource condition assessments or land management reports.

All manuscripts in the series receive an appropriate level of peer review to ensure that the information is scientifically credible, technically accurate, appropriately written for the intended audience, and designed and published in a professional manner. NRR reports are not juried under anonymous peer-review procedures.

Natural Resource Reports differ from the Natural Resource Data Series, which is intended for the timely release of basic data sets and data summaries.
