The Office of Research and Development is a world-class research organization, and the research conducted by scientists in Corvallis has far reaching significance, including support of decision making at local, regional, and national levels. One example is the development of methods to measure and account for the goods and services provided by ecosystems to people and the economy such as methods to determine the value of maintaining seagrass to support healthy fish habitat, and methods to determine the cost of rising ocean temperature on shellfish along the Oregon coast.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
