Congress mandates that researchers receiving federal funds must publish research results and distribute them to as wide an audience as possible. As one of the two founding research schools at UAF, the School of Natural Resources and Extension has generated plenty of research to report on over the last century. Topics cover a broad spectrum, from peony marketing to reindeer husbandry to the projected effects of climate change in the Arctic to the dynamics of forest soils in the taiga. This page is your source for research publications from SNRE.
The SNRE Communications Unit provides the editing, publishing, and distribution activities to support the dissemination of faculty and student research. Publications are written for a general or scientific audience, ranging from the research magazine, Agroborealis; to annual variety trial circulars detailing the results of tests on herbs, vegetables, and flowers at the Fairbanks Experiment Farm; to the Senior Thesis Series, highlighting the research of undergraduate students.
