Bonanza Creek Experimental Forest/Caribou-Poker Creeks Research Watershed

Located in the boreal forest of interior Alaska, USA. Research at this site focuses on improving the understanding of the long-term consequences of changing climate and disturbance regimes in the Alaskan boreal forest. Our overall objective is to document the major controls over forest dynamics, biogeochemistry, and disturbance and their interactions in the face of a changing climate. The site was established in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1987 as part of the National Science Foundation's Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Program.
