Long-term studies of organisms and the environment may help detect threats to both individual species and ecosystems as a whole. Monitoring bats can provide early warning of potentially negative changes in our local ecosystem such as habitat fragmentation and loss of habitat.

Active

A very precise and accurate GPS (global positioning system) can be vital to understanding earthquake hazards because it can reveal information that is invisible to seismometers--crustal movement that occurs over long time scales and is associated with crustal deformation and buildup of strain alo

Wireless digital camera traps are providing unprecedented and detailed information on some of JRBP's big unknowns, such as the abundance and behavior of large predators and the nature of biological corridors linking JRBP to other areas.

For plants, the soil environment is a major habitat factor and can be extremely important in plant speciation. Jasper Ridge is home to an extensive serpentine outcrop occupied by two superficially indistinguishable species of Lasthenia(Asteraceae), L. californica and L. gracilis.
