How do wild canines respond to the death of an alpha in the pack, and what does this mean for coexistence with carnivores in the American West? How do changes in ecological conditions affect changes in the socio-economics of mountain communities, and what can we do to predict and prepare for those impacts? How can Adaptive Ecologists use the best data and technology, ranging from longterm legacy datasets to high tech remote sensing products to the outreach potential of the World Wide Web, to address important ecological issues in a transparent, comprehensible, and impactful way? These are just some of the questions that YERC is asking with our Current research projects.projects
Hundreds of peer-reviewed publications, technical reports, master's theses and doctoral dissertations borne out of YERC's data, analyses, and collaborations stand testament to our long establishment and committment to sharing and applying what we learn. These Publications—either written by YERC staff or supported by YERC research—can be searched by author, year, and topic, while short, easy-to-read abstracts of some of our favorite and most interesting past publications—along with links to the full articles—can also be read here. And please check back here as we update and publish the results from our Current projects.publications
Not quite ready to tackle those technical scientific articles? Check out our popular media collection instead. YERC and its research have been featured in popular media outlets including National Geographic and the New York Times, as well as more local selections like the Billings Gazette. We are also expanding our video content, like with our short "Beartooth Fox Project” documentary. And we are always looking for the most up-to-date ways of capturing imaginations, cutting through the jargon, and opening minds so that everyone may understand and feel a part of Adaptive Ecology.Popular Media Success Stories
One of the best ways researchers can collaborate with one another is to share data and resources so that science is more efficient and solutions are provided faster. At YERC, we provide data products, management tools, and analysis software for download, free of charge; all part of our committment to collaboration and getting the best science to the decision-makers who need it. From tools like COASTER, which parses down monstorous continental-scale, multi-decade, high resolution datasets to make them manageable on a researcher's laptop, to EAGLES, which brings high power modeling into the hands of managers and policy-makers, our Products are just another way we share the best of YERC and Yellowstone with other ecosystems around the world.products
