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: Specific information regarding the species commonly used in field biology research or teaching at UAA will ultimately be accessible from Field Research Procedures as part of the CITI course. This area is under construction and information will be added as it becomes available. This area will ultimately contain resource material on specific techniques in wildlife capture, blood and tissue sampling, marking, etc.
