Species Ecology and Management

SERDP and ESTCP efforts are improving the understanding of the impacts of military activities on threatened, endangered, and at-risk species; developing the scientific understanding of the ecological characteristics and impacts of non-native invasive species; and developing and demonstrating methods and technologies for species management.
