Taylor Wilderness in the fall


Research Overview

How Taylor Science is Being Used

The research opportunities at the Taylor Wilderness Research Station are based on its remote location and the minimal human impact characteristic of the 2.3 million-acre Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. These characteristics allow studies of baseline conditions for many regional to global environmental changes (e.g., temperature increase, invasive species) and direct comparisons with areas subject to other management activities. College of Natural Resources faculty, students and research partners have worked with agencies such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Idaho Fish & Game.
