Research Extension Notes

"Our environment is our future" 


The Natural Resources and Environmental Studies Institute’s Research Extension Notes (REN) are peer-reviewed publications of the research findings of NRESi members and of graduate students in the NRES Graduate Program. NRESi Research Extension Notes are intended to provide an outlet through which Institute members can make their research findings available to a non-technical audience. Research Extension Notes are published in electronic format. More information formatting and submission of Research Extension Notes can be found here.
