U.S. Forest Service: Pacific Northwest Research Station
One of five regional units that make up the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Research and Development organization, the Pacific Northwest (PNW) Research Station has eleven locations in Alaska, Oregon, and Washington and about 500 employees. Its mission is to generate and communicate scientific knowledge that helps people understand and make informed choices about people, natural resources, and the environment. The PNW Research Station has strong partnerships with universities, national forests, state agencies, nonprofits, private industry, and other federal agencies. With these partners, they can address key questions associated with climate change, imperiled species, human health and well-being, and other topics.
The PNW Global Change Research area on their website provides links to resources and the station's climate research including studies of forest and ecosystem level adaptation to climate change.
