Knowing Yellowstone: science in America's first national park
Presently in Yellowstone there are almost 200 active research permits involving over 500 investigators, but only a small fraction of this scientific work is reported in the popular press. Knowing Yellowstone explains the general issues associated with the region and how science is done to understand those issues, from wolf and grizzly bear research to thermal activity, further describing how science informs policy in the region, and how the nature of their work enables or limits future plans for managing the park.
