Directly from the field, the Summer 2023 NRI Sourcebook is here — each season, we publish a digital collection of the recently published peer-reviewed scientific publications, research reports, and resources developed to support the improvement of conservation, natural resource management, and private land stewardship. This collection is for you, your partners and community to use and share where we can collaborate to create resiliency.
This season we’re releasing our most diverse body of work yet, with findings on camera trap herpetofauna surveys, large mammal reproduction influences and research methodologies, strategies for conserving imperiled species and estimating their future population persistence in the face of climate change, the use of technology to improve geographic distribution models, and the use of live streaming field-based learning courses. We are also releasing scientific reports and landowner resources about water trends in Texas, statewide land conservation issues, and carbon markets. Each item featured in the Sourcebook can be accessed on the NRI website under Research.
