Research Units were created to enhance graduate education in fisheries and
wildlife sciences and facilitate cooperative research among federal and state
natural resource agencies and universities on topics of mutual concern.

Research at the Vermont Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit is problem oriented
and provides our Cooperators (Vermont
Department of Fish and Wildlife, The
of Vermont, U.S. Geological
and Wildlife Management
Institute) and other agencies with useful and practical information needed
to understand and manage fish and wildlife resources in Vermont.
Technical areas of special emphasis include sea-lamprey control, Atlantic salmon
restoration, acoustical sampling, food-webs, energetics, landscape ecology, conservation
biology, and population modeling.
