Pacific Northwest Ecosystem Research Consortium

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

This website serves as the homepage for the Pacific Northwest Ecosystem Research Consortium (PNW-ERC). Goals of this project include understanding the ecological consequences of societal decisions related to changes in human populations and ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest and to develop transferable tools to support management of ecosystems at multiple spatial scales. The website includes information on the personnel and projects of this research group. There is also access to digital maps and supporting material used in developing future scenarios for the Willamette River Basin. Other functions of this website include a forum for sharing of data and a summary of PNW-ERC research and service projects. The website also contains an extensive list of on-line resources and a list of specific research questions addressed by members of the PNW-ERC. This resource is part of the Biocomplexity collection.
