(this page is under construction as of 5/12/2017)

This table catalogs the studies conducted on OSMP lands by independent researchers. The reports (ca. 400) can be accessed by clicking on the report title, except when the report is still forthcoming or a journal article. Note, our list of published journal articles is likely incomplete; if you have additions, please send them to Brian Anacker. The "Author's Name" column lists the lead author only. More information about the Funded Research Program and research permits is also available.
