Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Units Program: Alabama
Education, Research and Technical Assistance for Managing Our Natural Resources

Alabama Research Activities


Student setting a trap for bobwhite quail on Conecuh National Forest, AL.

The Alabama Unit has identified four areas in which to concentrate its research efforts: 1) determining the effects of forest management techniques on wildlife species, 2) investigating the ecology and management of stream corridors, 3) investigating the status, life history and habitat requirements of endangered or threatened species to obtain information necessary for the development of comprehensive recovery plans, and 4) investigating the ecology and management of fish and wildlife species on landscape scales. The Unit will not be restricted to these areas of investigation; however, it will work towards the development of comprehensive research programs in each.
