Staff Paper Series

The Department of Forest Resources Staff Paper Series is an internal publication, many are refined later as journal articles or other forms of publication. For this reason, and due to publication costs, we do not maintain a mailing list nor do we have an excess supply. The University of Minnesota Natural Resources Library does maintain a complete file.
