nificent areas and the research conducted by this network of sites helps address and better understand critical social, economic and natural resource challenges facing the region."

Project grants range from $10,000-$200,000. Other topics include calculating the economic value of forest ecosystem services, evaluating the effects of nitrogen deposition in forests, defining and understanding "sustainable" tourism, and assessing mercury distributions in forested watersheds. The NSRC is jointly directed by the University of Vermont's School of Natural Resources and the Hubbard Brook Project of the USDA Forest Service Northeastern Research Station.

"The NSRC is a unique research program that, though still young, already has outstanding partners and supporters in Senators Leahy and Gregg, the Hubbard Brook Project and the Forest Service," said Donald DeHayes, Dean of the University of Vermont School of Natural Resources, "We look forward to continuing the grant program and building it to further serve research needs in the Northern Forest.
