USGS Scientist Builds Research Partnerships with Russian Academy of Sciences: USGS scientist Greg Smith will be in Russia, June 7 - 21 to discuss new research opportunities between the USGS National Wetlands Research Center and the Russian Academy of Sciences. His objective is to develop new research proposals in the areas of spatial analysis and modeling, invasive species detection and watershed/delta ecology at research centers in Moscow, Borok, and Ulan Ude. Since 1988 Smith has maintained a long-term science partnership with these research centers and will take the USGS lead in planning new cooperative research projects with the Russian Academies supporting USGS Program Goals in Ecosystems, Wildlife, Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, and Invasive Species Programs.
