In the late 1990s, an international team of biologists began studying the plants and animals of Ikh Nart in conjunction with the Mongolian Academy of Sciences and local soum (county) government that administers the reserve. The studies aim to understanding the community ecology of the region and improve conservation management in the reserve.
Reseach is based out of a permanently staffed research station in north Ikh Nart. Three projects are on-going. Click on the project name below for more information.
