Description: The Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute (ALWRI) was conceived as an interagency partnership, and its founding in 1993 coincided with the creation of the National Biological Service (NBS), from the biological research programs and staff in the Department of the Interior. NBS research zoologist Steve Corn moved to Missoula to join the staff at ALWRI in 1996, at about the same time that NBS was merged into the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). USGS scientists in Montana were ultimately incorporated into the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center (NOROCK). Dr. Corn retired in August 2014, but the USGS presence at ALWRI is continued by Blake Hossack, who joined Corn’s project in 1999, earned his PhD in biological sciences at the University of Montana in 2011, and was hired as a research zoologist with USGS in 2012.
