The Science and Research Committee is responsible for keeping the Association informed of the ecological research and information needs of the states and to manage a process for addressing those needs through a variety of mechanisms including enhanced federal-state partnerships.
The committee also is tasked with developing an action plan, in coordination with research organizations, to initiate new research needed to address needs articulated by the states.
The committee meets its charge by collecting research and information needs; evaluating and prioritizing needs; facilitating the transfer of existing information to address specific needs; prioritizing needs that must be addressed through new research projects; coordinating action plans with research organizations (federal, state and others); evaluating the progress/findings of the research efforts; and facilitating the effective dissemination/translation of research findings into management implications to managers and decision-makers.
