Abstract

The UERC is a consortium of people from various universities and colleges, state and federal agencies, local governments, non-profit organizations and independent professionals interested in supporting urban ecosystem research and creating an information-sharing network of people that collect and use ecological data in the Portland/Vancouver area.

UERC Mission Statement:

To advance the state of the science of urban ecosystems and improve our understanding of them, with a focus on the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan region, by fostering communication and collaboration among researchers, managers and citizens at academic institutions, public agencies, local governments, non-profit organizations, and other interested groups.

The principal organizers span academic institutions, government agencies (city, regional, state and federal), private firms and non-profit organizations. Individuals from the institutions listed below have served on the steering committee. The diverse backgrounds and affiliations of those involved have allowed the UERC to bring together many important sectors of the natural resources community.
