The partners serve the biological, physical, social, cultural, and engineering disciplines needed to address natural and cultural resource management issues at multiple scales and in an ecosystem context. The US National Wildlife Refuge System Inventory & Monitoring (I&M) Branch collects data on the flora and vegetation of Refuge lands. These data are useful for describing Refuge biodiversity and can be used to develop a vegetation classification system which is undeveloped in Alaska. The I&M Branch of the National Wildlife Refuge System in Alaska announces the availability of $70,000 to analyze previously collected data on the flora of interior Alaska Refuges. UAA and the USFWS will work together to provide information to Refuge managers on the ecological and landscape context of their vegetation resources.
