Research and monitoring activities carried out or administered by museum staff generally target plants, plant communities and nongame wildlife within Mississippi. This includes species not traditionally managed as sport game or fish, and comprises the vast majority of the fauna and flora of the state. Collectively, they form a significant portion of the natural communities and ecosystems of Mississippi, and are an important component of our biological diversity.  Mississippi's State Wildlife Action Plan helps guide research and monitoring priorities by highlighting species and communities within the state that are of the greatest conservation concern.
