Most of the research projects undertaken by the NC Unit are field oriented and conducted by graduate students in close cooperation with Unit, other University, and agency biologists. These projects address the research and technical needs of the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, NC Wildlife Resources Commission, NC State University, and other State and Federal agencies and private organizations. The NC Unit also facilitates and administers funding for research conducted by cooperating faculty at NC State University to address research needs by State and Federal cooperating agencies.
