The NCASI Foundations supports projects which are diverse in nature and range from targeted research of specific at-risk species to the large-scale expansion of active work being done in Forest health to mitigate threats from invasive species and changing climates.
We are committed to furthering critical research for our planet.
Current projects include:
- Improving understanding of condensable PM formation: Method development, evaluation and comparison, and kinetic analysis.
- Technical Work to Improve the Science and Risk Assessment Processes in National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) Reviews
- Assessing wildlife value of slash piles including implications for martens and fishers
- Biodiversity in natural and managed early seral forests of southern Oregon
- Black-backed Woodpecker demographic rates in an understudied habitat: Unburned conifer forest
- BLM OR/ WA Coos Bay Coastal Marten Surveys
- Developing a Pacific marten habitat connectivity model for Lassen National Forest (CA)
- Evaluating pollinator plant associations, diversity, and abundance across a watershed-scale gradient of forest management intensity in the Oregon coast range
- Fisher conservation in Oregon under the Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances (CCAA) program
- Humboldt marten connectivity in the southern Oregon coast ranges
- Intensive Forest Management (IFM) Avian point count and vegetation
- Manipulating retained structures to improve wildlife value
- Quantifying the contribution of sustainable forest practices to at-risk species and terrestrial and aquatic communities
