Field Research Training
All field biology projects conducted by UAA, whether for research or teaching purposes and regardless of funding source, must be reviewed and approved by the UAA Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). There are no exemptions to the review process.
Guidelines for the use of mammals, birds, fishes, and amphibians/reptiles:
- Guidelines for the Capture, Handling and Care of Mammals
- Guidelines to the Use of Wild Birds in Research
- Guidelines for the Use of Fishes in Research
- Guidelines for Use of Live Amphibians and Reptiles in Field and Laboratory Research
NOTE: UAA's CITI Program account has several species-specific courses available, which focus on the species commonly used in UAA's field biology research and teaching.
