Research


Field Stations

Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research
Restoration of forests locally and internationally is more relevant than ever. Developing and sharing best practices for nursery production, filling niche markets with specialized trees, and fire restoration are top priorities at our forest nursery, first started in 1909.

McCall Field Campus
For more than 75 years the college has committed to hands-on STEM education and research on the banks of Payette Lake. Learning from the land in this natural classroom provides thousands of students of all ages the opportunity to not just learn science, but to live it.

Taylor Wilderness Research Station
This remote research station in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness is a pristine research and education site, surrounded by more than four million acres of wilderness. UI has owned the facility since 1970 and the college continues to invest in infrastructure and programming at this unique site.

University of Idaho Experimental Forest
Developing sustainable forest practices and practical experience come together on these 12,500 acres of timberland within a short drive from campus. This outdoor classroom is not only a hands-on training ground, it also the site of extensive research and outreach.


Research Units

Aquaculture Research Institute website
This interdisciplinary approach to addressing the region's fisheries issues includes labs on the main U of I campus as well as Hagerman Fish Culture Experiment Station in southern Idaho. Collaborative research with agencies and tribes provides management answers for fisheries around the region.

Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research
Created to address reforestation and restoration questions, the teaching, research and outreach are aided by a large forest nursery and provide best practices and seedling product for industry and agencies worldwide.

Intermountain Forestry Cooperative (IFC)
Defining Intermountain West forest site quality to develop and enhance site specific forest management.

Lab for Ecological, Evolutionary and Conservation Genetics (LEECG)
Using molecular methods to answer question in ecology, evolution and conservation biology, this lab group uses genetic analysis on a variety of plants and animals.

University of Idaho Experimental Forest (UIEF)
This living lab features more than 10,000 acres of actively managed forest land perfect for hands-on teaching, research and outreach.

Fish Ecology Research Lab (FERL)
Composed of faculty, staff research scientists and graduate students, this lab is dedicated to the study of fish behavior and ecology in river systems of the Pacific Northwest, and focused on the sustainable management of native fish species.

Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES)
Created by the University of Idaho in collaboration with the U.S.F.S. Rocky Mountain Research Station to provide an exchange of information and technology within the wildland fire research and management community, FRAMES includes Online Training and Certifications; the Idaho Fire Initiative for Research & Education (IFIRE); the Emissions & Smoke Portal; a Fire Videos & Webinars Archive; a searchable Online Database of wildland fire-related information; job listings; and more.

Idaho Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Unit
Working closely with state and federal partners, the research from this unit addresses management issues in fish and wildlife populations. Graduate students here benefit from unique relationships with agency leaders.

Inland Empire Tree Improvement Cooperative
Regional reforestation challenges are met by this collaborative membership-driven group committed to applying crop breeding techniques for best outcomes.

Kennedy LIFE Lab - Laboratory for Integrative Fish Ecology
Through interdisciplinary research, productive collaborations and innovative approaches the Kennedy LIFE Lab seeks a better understanding of ecological processes in fish and aquatic sciences. Current projects attempt to understand mechanisms that control population dynamics, the creation and maintenance of biodiversity, and diverse life history strategies in aquatic systems. The LIFE lab maintains a full service laboratory for analysis of hard part microchemistry across a wide variety of ecological applications. Services include sample preparation and cutting-edge analysis using thermal ionization and laser-ablation mass spectrometry for trace element and isotopic analysis of otoliths and other hard part samples across numerous taxa.

University of Idaho Policy Analysis Group
PAG provides unbiased data and analysis to natural resource industries and the legislature.

Reveley Geospatial Laboratory for Environmental Dynamics
New technologies in remote sensing and geographic information systems bring practical training and research tools to students and faculty researchers in this cutting-edge lab.

Taylor Wilderness Research Station
Providing outstanding access, facilities, and logistical support for research on natural environments and processes.

University of Idaho Rangeland Center
An interdisciplinary team of researchers and educators from all over Idaho uses science to find long-term solutions for managing rangelands.


Outreach Programs

McCall Outdoor Science School
A program of the University of Idaho’s College of Natural Resources. The School and its partners foster scientific literacy, enlightened leadership and open-minded dialogue through graduate and professional education, youth science programs, seminars, conferences, and leadership development initiatives.
