The Evolution of Patuxent as a Research Refuge and a Wildlife Research

Detailed Description

The Evolution of Patuxent as a Research Refuge and a Wildlife Research Center by Dr. M.C. Perry

1993, all biological research within the Department of the Interior was consolidated into one agency. This consolidation led to the separation of Patuxent Research Refuge (PRR) from Patuxent Wildlife Research Center (PWRC). This separation left the refuge program under the administration of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the research program, eventually under the administrative control of the U.S. Geological Survey. Over the years the land area and the research programs have been considered as one and the name “Patuxent” has been used interchangeably by staff and public to refer to both land and research.
