The USGS Pacific Island Ecosystems Research Center (PIERC) strives "to provide objective research, baseline information, and technical assistance relating to conservation and restoration of indigenous biological resources occurring within the cultural, sociological and political context of the States and Islands Territories of Hawaii, Guam, Truk, the Marianas Islands, American Samoa and others under the U.S. jurisdiction in the Pacific Basin." The PIERC website contains a very extensive annotated bibliography that serves as introduction to the Center's research. The site also links to information about Field Station Projects under various categories including Hawaiian Birds Projects, Wild Life Health, Ecosystem and Biological Diversity, and Molecular Genetics. In addition, links are provided to Project Leader pages with contact information, professional experiences, and publication lists.
