Current research and monitoring activities include ongoing monitoring of water levels in Pinelands ponds and forests, water quality, and fish, frog and toad, and vegetation communities at streams and impoundments throughout the Pinelands (Environmental Monitoring); a study to determine the effectiveness of upland-buffer zones in mitigating the impact of suburbanization on the integrity of forested wetlands and frog-breeding ponds (Buffer Study); a study to characterize land-use impacts on intermittent Pinelands ponds (Pond Study), and a study to compare the functional equivalency of natural ponds, excavated ponds, and stormwater basins (Created Wetlands Study).
