Past Publications

Research at Black Rock Forest spans a broad range of disciplines, with current research foci in forest ecology, wildlife biology, ecophysiology, biogeochemistry, and paleoecology. Since the creation of the Black Rock Forest Consortium in 1989, scientists have produced more than 700 publications, papers and published abstracts, in addition to the 75 produced under earlier ownership of the Forest. A total of 35 master’s theses and Ph.D. dissertations have been produced at Black Rock Forest. Since 1999, Black Rock Forest has hosted a regional Research Symposium every other year.
