Historical Ecology

Historical Ecology Studies synthesize diverse historical data (maps, photographs, textual accounts, etc.) to enhance understanding of the ecological, hydrological, and geomorphic conditions of a particular region prior to major Euro-American modification. Findings from the studies are compiled into maps and illustrated technical reports describing historical conditions and processes and discussing implications for management and restoration.
