The Cooperative Research Units were created to enhance graduate education in fisheries and wildlife sciences and to facilitate research among natural resource agencies and universities on topics of mutual concern. The Arkansas Unit, one of 40 units nationwide, is a partnership among the U.S. Geological Survey, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, the University of Arkansas, and the Wildlife Management Institute.

Research at the Arkansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit focuses on management related issues and provide our Cooperators with practical information needed to better manage natural resources in Arkansas and the region. Areas of emphasis include tail-water fishery management, aquatic turtle harvest and conservation, crayfish life history and management, stable isotope research, resource selection, and avian behavior and nesting ecology.
