Dr. Martin Nie

Martin Nie is Professor of Natural Resources Policy and Director of the Bolle Center for People and Forests in the W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation at the University of Montana. His research and teaching focuses on federal public lands and wildlife law, policy and management. He is the author of dozens of scholarly articles, law reviews, two books, and even more applied policy analysis. Central themes of his scholarly work are the challenges and opportunities in managing shared resources that cross boundaries amongst federal, state and tribal sovereign governments. Some of his most recent research, outreach and engagement focuses on tribal co-management of federal public lands and resources, wildlife conservation on federal lands, and public lands planning. He advises and consults across a broad range of public lands and wildlife issues, especially at the sweet spot where law meets policy and impacts on-the-ground management. Appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture, Nie served from 2014-2018 on the U.S. Forest Service’s National Advisory Committee for Implementation of the National Forest System Land Management Planning Rule.
