Current and Past Research at the Idaho NERP



The INL occupies one of the largest tract of relatively undisturbed sagebrush-steppe rangeland in the United States. The land provides an important habitat for resident and migrating wildlife.  Over 40 species of mammals and 230 species of birds have been found on the INL.  The INL also supports over 420 species of flowering plants.  Because of the inherent ecological benefits of such a large tract of protected and relatively undisturbed habitat, the scientific community recognizes this acreage as an exciting opportunity for research.
