Results and Accomplishments
The “Participatory Biological Monitoring Guidelines” project helps natural resource managers and scientists expand their ability to form partnerships with local communities and other stakeholders to meet biological monitoring needs while maintaining scientific standards. The project has produced a set of guidelines designed as a reference tool for working with any type of project whether bottom-up or top-down, large or small, volunteer or small contractor. While oriented toward natural resource managers and scientists, the guidelines are useful for anyone interested in participatory research processes. The project maintains a network of advisors and consultants to assist with local implementation.
