DataONE Welcomes the Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative

Monday, October 2, 2017

The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative (FEMC) archives, synthesizes, and utilizes forest ecosystem information, as well as facilitating networks and providing tools to understand and monitor the health and management of forested ecosystems across the region. FEMC serves the northeast temperate forest region through improved understanding of long-term trends, annual conditions, and interdisciplinary relationships of the physical, chemical, and biological components of forested ecosystems. The cooperative also promotes the efficient coordination of multi-disciplinary environmental monitoring and research activities among federal, state, university, and private-sector agencies with common interests in the long-term health, management, and protection of forested ecosystems.

FEMC has developed many products and services over the years. In addition to a data archive, collections and tools, FEMC has created long-term monitoring reports which are updated annually, and also reports from partner projects with cooperators from New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. A number of other publications are also available, such as annual conference proceedings. FEMC also provides a wide variety of education and outreach programs to the surrounding community. More information can be found at https://www.uvm.edu/femc/.

DataONE is excited to help make FEMC’s collection of nearly 350 (and growing!) datasets more widely available. Welcome Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative!
