As the farthest north outpost of the USDA Forest Service, and through
a cooperative agreement with the University of Alaska Fairbanks, BECRU
works to understand the structure and function of the dynamic boreal forest.
Our goals are to conduct research, mentor graduate and undergraduate students,
and provide support and coordination for the Bonanza Creek LTER
through our research in partnership with other agencies (including
the Joint Fire Science Project (JFSP), Alaska Division of Forestry (DOF),
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and educational institutions such as
University of Florida, Yukon College, University of Saskatchewan,
Michigan State University and Kyoto University in Japan).
