The Pinelands Research Series provides a regular forum for scientists to present and discuss Pinelands-related research. Presentations are usually technical in nature and about an hour long. The Research Series is a free event that is open to the public and hosted by the New Jersey Pinelands Commission. Listed below are the speakers and presentation titles for upcoming and previous Research Series events. Links are also provided for some of the previous presentations.
