Illinois Natural History Survey - University of Illinois

INHS Researchers are involved in all aspects of endangered species protection in Illinois; from locating populations, to understanding their life history, to creating and implementing Species Survival Plans, and monitoring the success of those actions.

 The INHS Biological Surveys and Assessment Program works with the Illinois Department of Transportation to minimize the effects of road building and maintenance on local plants and animals, specifically threatened and endangered species.
