Wildlife Conservation Society, New York, NY c96 (2300 Southern Boulevard Bronx, New York 10460 718-220-5100, Phone: 718-220-5100, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org). Headquartered at New York City's Bronx Zoo, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) works to save wildlife and wild lands throughout the world. For more than a century, WCS has inspired care for nature, pioneered environmental education programs, and helped sustain biological diversity. The Society's Science Resource Center (SRC) helps researchers assess data through computer mapping, ecological analysis and cutting-edge molecular genetics. The SRC was established in March 1994 as an information and scientific learning hub for the Wildlife Conservation Society. The SRC’s mission is to provide technical resources to WCS staff so that they can fully integrate cutting-edge information, science and technology in their work saving wildlife. SRC's projects that utilize GIS include A Framework for Identifying High-Priority Areas for the Conservation of Tigers in the Wild, Patagonia Coastal Zone Management Plan, and Integrated genetic and GIS analysis of Old World Monkeys (Family:Cercopithecidae) of South Africa: Implications for management and translocation: South Africa.
Woods Hole Research Center, Ma e94 . (see under ECP Feature Stories) (P.O. Box 296, Woods Hole, MA, 02543-0296, Phone: 508-540-9900, Fax: 508-540-9700, E-mail: email@example.com). The Woods Hole Research Center addresses the great issues of environment through scientific research and education and through applications of science in public affairs. It uses remote sensing and GIS to study the major forested regions of the world - the tropics of South America and the boreal forests of the former Soviet Union. One of its long-term goals is the production of a Global Forest Inventory - a measure of current global forest extent and composition and global terrestrial carbon sequestration - that will help monitor future changes in the world's valuable forest resources. An early step toward this goal is its Spatially Explicit Map of Forest Stand Carbon for Russia. Don't miss their Electronic Atlas of Cape Cod.
