APA Science and Research
About the APA’s Research Analysis and Scientific Services Unit
The Adirondack Park provides a rich landscape for the research of natural and cultural resources. Throughout its more than a quarter-century of operation, the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) has built scientific, geographic, and planning databases to be able to serve the public more effectively and efficiently, to aid the decision-making process for other State agencies, local governments, organizations and landowners in the Park, and to encourage more research involvement within the Park.

"Anothura troglodytes [Troglodytes troglodytes - Winter Wren]-No.
585, August 11, 1875. Rather common in the dense woods, but rarely
seen ... it is often heard; however, for it possesses a gushing,
ringing song, wonderfully loud for so small a creature; excepting
the thrushes it is the sweetest songster in the Adirondac woods
-- Teddy Roosevelt, age 16, from his pamphlet The Summer Birds of the Adirondacks in Franklin County, N.Y.
