Based on 20 years of BEMP data, we see that flooding is the key ecological driver of the bosque.

All BEMP data can be accessed and manipulated by any interested user.  To request current data analysis and/or effects of land management strategies at various BEMP sites, please contact BEMP Co-Director Kim Eichhorst, PhD at kimde@unm.edu
