    Research

    The Institute's core strength is conducting and catalyzing field studies that lead to conservation action.

    The Lava Lake Institute supports and conducts research in field ecology needed to inform land management decisions and practices that effect conservation of native species within the Pioneer Mountains - Craters of the Moon area and throughout the Northern Rockies/Great Basin regions. We design and support experimental research and wildlife and ecological inventories that not only further the base of scientific knowledge on the ecosystems, species, and natural processes occurring in this region of Idaho, but also provide useful information to land managers to better achieve conservation across this landscape in which we are working and beyond.

    Our priority research topics include: wildlife migration, aspen ecology, landscape-scale monitoring, climate change, livestock grazing management, sagebrush steppe restoration, and noxious weed management.
