Research programs at the Jones Center

Focus on understanding the ecology, restoration, and management of the longleaf pine ecosystems and the water resources, wetlands, and aquatic ecosystems of the southeastern Coastal Plain.

Ichauway is located in the heart of the historic range of longleaf pine. Longleaf pine ecosystems are among the rarest and most biologically diverse in North America and are increasingly a focus of conservation efforts. Southwest Georgia is also a hydrologically unique karst region that serves as the major recharge area for one of the nation’s most prolific and heavily used aquifers, the Upper Floridan aquifer. We balance basic research of these systems with applied work of relevance to the natural resource management and conservation communities and see the Center as a crossroads for research and practice.
