International Biological Programme
The Desert Biome studies of the International Biological Program (IBP) took place between 1964 and 1974 and included research sites in the Jornada Basin. This program led to the founding of the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program in 1982, and IBP research underpins much of the research that has taken place at the Jornada Basin LTER site. Numerous IBP reports were published up until 1979. These reports are available at the locations below.
- The Quinney Library at Utah State University has a comprehensive archive of IBP Desert Biome progress reports.
- Electronic copies and selected paper copies of the reports are available at the administrative headquarters of the Jornada Basin LTER. Contact the LTER information manager for details.
