    List the kinds of organisms or substance you intend to study
    [e.g. birds, nitrate, rainfall, etc.]



  7. Research locations at Hubbard Brook
  8. Describe the specific sites at Hubbard Brook where you plan to work.


    When did you discuss site selection with the site manager (Ian Halm)?



    What was the outcome of this discussion?



  9. How is the proposed research related to similar published and ongoing research at Hubbard Brook? (Proposers are encouraged to contact other Hubbard Brook investigators to discuss this and to summarize the discussion here. Specific Hubbard Brook publications and datasets should be cited where appropriate)



  10. Proposal Abstract [or equally brief description of proposed research]




  11. Field Methods and Sampling Procedures [sufficient information to determine disturbance and impact of sampling]





  12. Safety Plan (The Forest Service is committed to increasing safety awareness among its employees and research cooperators. The Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest consists of rugged terrain with limited access and possibility of severe weather year-round. Appropriate preparations are necessary prior to engaging in field work. Provide a description of your safety guidelines for personnel working in both the woods and the field lab. This may include check-in/check-out procedures, job hazard analysis, and relevant training and safety equipment.)



  13. Special Considerations [If the proposed research involves potentially hazardous or contaminating materials (e.g. isotopes, introduced plants or animals, fertilizers or other chemical additions such as insecticides or herbicides), provide specific information about the material, including justification for use, potential problems or concerns, and a statement on precautions that will be taken with material handling and monitoring]
