Terrestrial Synthesis for Voyageurs National Park: In this multi year project, a synthesis of terrestrial natural resource research, inventory, monitoring and management will be developed as a compendium for the park's first 35+ years (1972-present). The synthesis will address terrestrial resources (e.g., mammals, birds, forest vegetation, fire history, air quality) in the southern transitional boreal forest. Some of the information included in the terrestrial synthesis will by necessity need to overlap with portions of the completed aquatic synthesis (e.g., amphibians and reptiles, beavers, atmospheric deposition of nutrients and contaminants). The objectives of the project are to: 1) conduct a thorough assessment of existing information and compile a bibliography for each subject, 2) summarize research and resource management findings/recommendations , 3) review current park resource management priorities and policies, and 4) complete recommendations from the synthesis in a flow chart format to present a viable and feasible sequence of future research and resource management actions.

The PI has extensive research experience in forests of northern Minnesota and in writing and editing synthetic documents of large scope. For example, the PI was one of the principal authors of the Minnesota Generic Environmental Impact Statement on Timber Harvesting and Forest Management that considered issues such as relationships between forest management and plant communities, wildlife, soils, productivity and climate change, and guides forest policy in the state through the year 2040. PI was also principle ecologist for the Final Environmental Impact Statement, Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness Fuel Treatment, an EIS on the impacts of the USDA Forest Service prescribed fire program in boreal forests of the boundary waters wilderness adjacent to Voyageurs National Park. PI has over 50 publications in the peer-reviewed literature, on topics including forest fires, wind storms, plant-animal interactions (large herbivores), invasive species, plant communities, and soils. The vast majority of this research has been carried out in the Western Great Lakes Region from 1990 to 2009.
