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

Louisiana Research Activities


The Louisiana Unit studies wetlands and wetland-dependent wildlife to enhance their conservation and management. Shown from left to right: blue crab, dead trees from salt water intrusion, students in airboat in the marsh, snow geese arising at dawn from a wetland at Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge, and a student examining a massive baldcypress tree at Cache River National Wildlife Refuge.

Research at the Louisiana Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit largely revolves around wetlands and wetland-dependent wildlife. We work across the U.S., with occassional international research, in coastal marshes, riverine systems, and other inland freshwater wetlands. We study the biotic and abiotic processes that structure wetlands, including hydrology, soils, and geomorphology. In addition, waterfowl, other waterbirds,fish, oysters, crabs, aquatic invertebrates, and plants are often studied.
