USFS Northern Research Station
One of five regional units that make up the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Research and Development organization, the Northern Research Station (NRS) maintains 21 research locations throughout a 20-state territory. The station develops management strategies for plants, soil, air, water, and wildlife to meet the needs of people and communities. NRS scientists are involved in research to understand the processes and extent of global climate change and their probable/possible effects on forest ecosystems. From the NRS website there are links to many climate related publications, long term research including species specific studies, and models and modeling tools.
