Natural Resources Monitoring Partnership

The Natural Resources Monitoring Partnership supplies valuable information for resource management, including a Monitoring Protocol Library and a Monitoring Project Locater . Resource managers may also join and contribute monitoring data to the partnership.

NMRP Monitoring Protocol Library - A Web-based, searchable database of monitoring protocols and resource assessment methodologies.

Monitoring Project Locater - A Web-based, GIS application allowing users to asses what natural resource monitoring is conducted within a particular area (e.g., State, county, Canadian Province, or other selected geographic area). Utilize search tools to stay informed about ongoing and historic monitoring regarding specific parameters of interest.

Land Resources

Land resources include public and privately held lands.  Public lands include U.S. department of interior lands, national wildlife refuges, state and federal forest lands, state parks and natural areas, municipal parks, state wildlife management areas, and other federally managed lands such as military reservations.  Privately held lands include conservation easements and other private property such as farmland, forestland, and research parks.

FRAMES - Southern Fire Portal

The Southern Fire Portal (SFP) is a geographic focus of the Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES).

The SFP improves fire science organization and accessibility by integrating and expanding three comprehensive, complementary sources of fire information:

  1. Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES)
  2. The Encyclopedia of Southern Fire Science (ESFS)
  3. The Tall Timbers Research Station E.V. Komarek Fire Ecology Database and Thesaurus.

As a nexus of fire effects information and technology transfer, the Southern Fire Portal is the Southeast's gateway for continuing collaboration between fire management and research communities and their publics.

Visit the SFP for fire-related research data, documents, projects, tools, and Web sites.

The NBII Program is administered by the Biological Informatics Program of the U.S. Geological Survey
