Research professionals in the sciences, including environmental science, biology, ecology, geology, meteorology, forestry, and others, are invited to share their work at this web site. Each investigator listed below has submitted a summary document about a body of work done about a specific area or a general topic. One example of a report done on a key research finding that can act as an example for secondary inquiry has also been submitted. The research pertains to phenomena with observable manifestations in wild land settings at or near roadside areas. Some topics are broad, for example ponderosa pine ecology, while others are very specific, such as Montezuma Well's unique aquatic ecosystem.

All information has been "translated" from its technical form to common (newspaper ready or high school equivalent) English. In some instances technical terms have been retained when necessary for exactness.
