Current Research

Current research and monitoring activities include:

  • Environmental Monitoring, which includes sampling water quality, vegetation, fish, and frogs and toads at streams and impoundments throughout the Pinelands and monitoring water levels in Pinelands ponds and forests;

  • Buffer 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;

  • Pond Study to characterize land-use impacts on intermittent Pinelands ponds; and 

  • Created Wetlands Study to compare the functional equivalency of natural ponds, excavated ponds, and stormwater basins.
