Our People

Our research network is composed of a variety of scientific, government, and community-based organizations. While our leadership resides mostly on the USDA Forest Service and the University of Puerto Rico, these multiple groups are involved in decision-making and implementation of the research process (see List of Partners). Our scientists come from many local and national research institutions, including the University of Puerto Rico (Río Piedras and Medical Science campuses), State University of New York, Clark University, University of New Hampshire, University of California, LA, Arizona State University, and the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
