About This Journal

The University of Wyoming-National Park Service (UW-NPS) Research Center is a cooperative effort between the University of Wyoming and the National Park Service. Headquartered on the University of Wyoming campus in Laramie, the research center was established to foster research in National Parks in the Rocky Mountain Region. In addition, the center operates a field research station at the AMK Ranch in Grand Teton National Park which is open from mid-May through mid-October.

The primary function of the Research Station is to promote excellence in research by furnishing housing, laboratory space, transportation, equipment and financial support to enable investigators in the biological, physical and social sciences to access the rich and diverse environments of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, Bridger-Teton and Targhee National Forest and the Gros Vente and Teton Wilderness Areas.

The UW NPS Annual Reports are annual publications reporting on the research conducted at the UW NPS Research Center.

In 1977, the name of the journal changed to University of Wyoming National Park Service Research Center Annual Report

These reports summarize the research and associated activities conducted at and through the Station.The work to bring these annual reports online has been funded and supported by the University of Wyoming Libraries.
