IEP Technical Publications

IEP Technical Reports focus on scientific topics for resource managers, scientists and the public. An IEP Technical Report is an irregularly produced publication series that provides an avenue for reporting on larger, more complex studies or data collection effort. IEP Technical Reports are usually greater than 70 type written pages and do not undergo external peer review. Findings should be interpreted with caution.
