Alaska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit
The Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit is jointly sponsored and financed by the U.S. Geological Survey, UAF, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Wildlife Management Institute. The unit supports and guides graduate training in fisheries and wildlife biology and management.
Wildlife research is directed toward habitat relationships, avian ecology, wildlife population dynamics, and the impact of northern development on wild animals and their habitats. Fisheries research focuses on the ecology and fisheries of Alaska freshwater ecosystems, and evaluation and development of cold-water fisheries techniques.
