Manassas National Battlefield Park offers an ideal natural laboratory in which to study a wide variety of research topics. Important science issues at the park include, but are not limited to, air pollution, water quality, habitat fragmentation, invasive exotic species, rare species conservation and restoration of disturbed natural and cultural landscapes. Manassas National Battlefield Park is characterized by gently rolling hills with a patchwork of open fields and forests.The park's landscape is representative of the Culpeper basin and is one of the region's most unspoiled areas.
National Park Service staff, experts from other federal agencies, scientists and graduate students in academia, and independent researchers conduct scientific research in the park. Prospective researchers must apply for a permit.
One of the primary goals of the National Capital Region Network (NCRN) is to develop and maintain verified, substantiated, and certified vascular plant and vertebrate species lists for each network park. The information presented in these web-based species lists are subsets of data managed in NPSpecies, which is the master biodiversity database for the National Park Service, and is the tool used by NCRN for meeting this goal.
The species lists presented here have all gone through a certification process. This involves the evaluation and review of the species information by local experts who are well-versed in the biology, taxonomy, and nomenclature of species in the network parks.
