At the request of the park, DLIA has formed Tree Teams of citizen scientists to sample threatened forest types, in order to discover what species of invertebrates may also be lost as these forests continue to decline. DLIA is a pioneer in using comprehensive approaches to biodiversity sampling, but some tree stand types have not had this sampling. The high elevation American beech tree stands are the first forest type to be sampled by DLIA using a newly developed multi-collection method.
