NATURAL HERITAGE

Natural Heritage Program Publications

(exclusive of Virginia Academy of Science abstracts)

In the course of our conservation work, DNH scientists research a wide range of subjects in Natural History. Some of these investigations produce data of interest to the scientific community, from the range of a dragonfly to the composition of prairie vegetation at Buffalo Mountain. To share the most significant research with the scientific community, staff biologists publish work in many peer-reviewed publications. There is limited time for publishing work through the office and many DNH scientists will work nights and weekends to gather data and write-up results. Below is a list of the peer-reviewed papers and publications produced by DNH scientists and their co-authors.

To request reprints, please contact the authors directly.
