Description

The Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute strives to provide scientific leadership in developing and applying the knowledge necessary to sustain wilderness ecosystems and values. Since its 1993 dedication, researchers at this federal, interagency Institute have collaborated with researchers and managers from other federal, academic and private institutions to support and conduct research on high priority topics related to recreation, natural disturbances and nonnative species. This paper gives an overview of the research conducted through the Leopold Institute and suggests future wilderness research directions for these issues. Leopold Institute staff strive to make research applicable to management through all phases of the research process.
