Abstract : The purpose of the Ecological Monitoring Program is to study ecological and/or biological characteristics of selected biota in an environment that includes natural stresses and low-level ELF electromagnetic fields. Sixteen general types of organisms from three major ecosystems in the System area are being examined. Study sites were selected in 1982, and will be examined further in 1983. Statistical methods of analysis proposed by investigators are identified, and biological and ecological end-points selected for study are described. Data collection began in 1982 and will be continued in 1983 for studies of vegetation, soil animals, pollinating insects, small mammals and birds, wetlands, vegetation associations, and aquatic community relationships.
