Vast, wild Northern Forest gains new allies: 18 projects named in $1.8 million study

UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT A small group of scientists will develop working models to balance the wishes of foresters and recreation enthusiasts with the need to maintain the biodiversity of ecological reserves in the vast, wild Northern Forest that stretches from Maine through Vermont and New Hampshire to New York's Adirondacks.

Another cluster of university researchers will use GIS and satellite mapping to measure and predict the movement of invasive species through the forest's ecosystem. And a third team will track the changes land use has on land-forms and water quality in the streams that flow through the Northern Forest.

These are just three of 18 projects totaling nearly $1.8 million in research grants for studies of the Northern Forest and its communities, the Northeastern States Research Cooperative (NSRC), announced this week. Grants were made possible through the efforts of U.S. Senators Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Judd Gregg (R-NH).

The project represents an enormous amount of useful data gathered by the region's top-notch researchers cooperating at institutions such as the University of Vermont, Dartmouth College, Cornell University, University of New Hampshire, Lyndon State College and the USDA Forest Service in order to serve one of the nation's most undeveloped, biodiverse regions.

"Landowners, communities and residents of the Northern Forest have long recognized the need for on-the-ground research across the region," said Leahy, senior member of the Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee overseeing NSRC funding, "These grants are one of the key tools we have throughout the region to address the growing challenges of the Northern Forest."

"The collaboration of existing research sites throughout the Northeast has been used to construct regional databases and increase interaction among scientists," added Gregg, who is also a member of the Senate subcommittee. "The Northern Forest is one of the Northeast's most mag
