Arkansas Research Activities

The red-eared slider is the most commonly harvested freshwater turtle in Arkansas. Data are needed to understand the effects of commercial harvest on turtle populations.

The Cooperative Research Units Program conducts research on a wide range of disciplines related to fish, wildlife, and natural resource management. The programs offer Federal and State agencies access not only to unit scientists, but also to university expertise and facilities available at each of the 40 cooperating universities. Most research projects are carried out by graduate students participating with and/or under the direction of unit or other university scientists.

The research may be of local, regional, national, or international interest. The research programs conducted by units are approved as directed by the Coordinating Committee overseeing each unit.
