The Don Bragg Papers

Dr. Don Bragg is a research forester  and longtime NTS member.  He also serves as editor of the Bulletin of the Eastern Native Tree Society.  He works at the US Forest Service, Southern Research Station, PO Box 3516, University of Arkansas at Monticello, Monticello, AR 71656.

Don submitted for inclusion on the NTS website and the BBS six papers he has authored or co-authored with other NTS members to be included as part of our Special Publication Series.  He writes:  "Because I am a federal employee and have written these materials on official time, they become part of the public domain and hence can’t be copyrighted, even by the private journals that publish them."

The NTS Publication Series will contain both peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed papers.  We will make every effort to ensure the scientific, technical, and editorial quality of all of the papers being distributed.  Papers marked as peer reviewed have undergone a review process in the strictest scientific sense of the word  including the use of anonymous reviewers on paper with a realistic chance of being rejected for publication is considered the scientific standard.  

Publications submitted so far by Don Bragg include:

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
