Journal of the Adirondack Research Consortium, aims to bridge the gaps among academic disciplines and among researchers and practitioners devoted to understanding and promoting the development of sustainable communities in the Adirondacks, both human and wild.
The Adirondack Lakes Survey Corporation was created to monitor changes to natural ecosystems of the Adirondack Mountain ecological zone with a focus on water quality, atmospheric deposition, fish surveys, and other biological and chemical studies for the benefit of regulatory agencies and the general public. Surveys and data are available from 1984 to the present.
The New York State DEC's Unit Management Plans (UMPs) assess the natural and physical resources present within a land unit, identify opportunities for public use which are consistent with the classifications of these lands, and consider the ability of the resources and ecosystems to accommodate such use.
