The Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) is one of seven units in the Research and Development branch of the USDA Forest Service. Forest Service Research and Development is unique in its ability to provide independent, management-focused science and long-term data and projects for the natural resource questions of today and tomorrow. The Rocky Mountain Research Station is rooted in the geography of the Interior West, but is integrated in a national research program that has global applications. We work in fourteen laboratories in ten different states and manage fourteen Experimental Forests and Ranges, our landscape-scale living laboratories for long-term research and management studies. The greatest asset of RMRS is our network of over 400 employees, with nearly 100 research scientists. They work across a spectrum of biological, ecological, physical, and social science disciplines and ecosystem types in the Western United States. With our employees, partners, and collaborators, we bring diverse perspectives to identify and develop solutions for the complicated resource and landscape problems of the 21st century.
