IEP Publications

The IEP Lead Scientist is happy to receive notice of publications involving the IEP Community and will periodically post a listing of those items received here. We welcome refereed literature notices from IEP scientists, studies using IEP-derived data, IEP-sponsored studies, and members of the broader Bay-Delta Estuarine community who would like to display research-related publication notices here.

The IEP Lead Scientist shares this listing with IEP Directors and Coordinators on a quarterly basis and would be grateful to receive file copies or locations of open access articles as available. Please contact iep@wildlife.ca.gov for more information. This is not a comprehensive listing, nor does inclusion infer any endorsement whatsoever of findings or conclusions.
