Annual Report 2010-11

on the cover: Geography Awareness Week, hosted by the UA Geography Program, a department of SNRAS, included an event on Nov. 19 at the UAF Wood Center based on the theme “Geography: the Adventure in Your Community.” Pearl Creek Elementary School fourth grade teacher Mary Maisch brought a huge 3-D map of Alaska her students made. The detailed relief map featured rivers, mountain ranges, parks, forests, cities and villages.
This report covers two years' worth of research, highlighting the Agricultural Research Service's integrated pest and invasive plant management projects as well as the work of SNRAS. Highlights of AFES and SNRAS research include examination of environmental policy and law; effect of progesterone and melatonin on gestation length in reindeer; alternative agronomic crops; poplar as a short-rotation bio-energy crop; and organic amendments and fish byproducts for peonies.

Covering SNRAS' partners, facilities, research sites, programs, and research in geography, high latitude agriculture and soils, management of ecosystems, and natural resources use and allocation, the annual report for calendar year 2009 shows the breadth of scientific research we do. From marine transportation policy to artificial insemination of reindeer, from biofuels to peony production, from phosphorus and carbon in northern soils to climate change and the anthropology of wood use, from crab fisheries management to wetlands habitat in Fairbanks, our scientists and students are on the cutting edge of modern scientific discovery.
