The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative has produced a number of documents over the year. Below are some of the key reports, publications and other documents produced by the Cooperative

Long-term Monitoring Updates, Synthesis Reports, and Annual Reports

The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative, periodically collates and reports on the long-term trends in key monitoring datasets. We have compiled this information into long-term updates that give an overview of the data for that year, as well as putting it in context with longer data trends, providing quick, digestible summaries of the data. These quick snapshots of key ecosystem components provide useful information for understanding, tracking and management.

Long-term Monitoring Update Cover image
  • Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative Regional Monitoring Update - 2016
    Building on the success of the 2015 monitoring report, FEMC has worked to expand summaries of several select datasets to a more regional assessment of trends and conditions. The result is the first FEMC Regional Monitoring Update, for data-year 2016, covering the states of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont. This report provides an overview of the data collected in 2016, as well as a comparison of that data to the long-term trends and the greater context of the information presented.
  • Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative Long-Term Monitoring Update - 2016
    Building on the success of the 2015 monitoring report, FEMC has worked with project leaders from several of FEMC's flagship monitoring programs as well as other key monitoring programs from around the state to produce another installment of the annual monitoring report. This report provides an overview of the data collected in 2016, as well as a comparison of that data to the long-term trends and the greater context of the information presented.
  • Vermont Monitoring Cooperative: 2015 Long-Term Monitoring Update
    In addition to updates to all the findings presented in 2014, this year we are able to include a new section on 19 years of trout population monitoring in Ranch Brook.
  • Vermont Monitoring Cooperative: 2014 Long-Term Monitoring Update
    In addition to updates to all the findings presented in 2013, this year we are excited to report on additional long-term datasets, including Aerial Detection Surveys that have generated statewide maps of forest disturbance going back to 1995, Sentinel Stream Monitoring that tracks conditions in undisturbed watersheds for signs of climate change, and Ozone Pollution Monitoring that looks for trends in atmospheric concentrations of ozone and its impact on sensitive plant species.
