Ecosystems & Society
The College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment diverse research program seeks to addresses many of today’s most critical issues facing society including global climate change, public health, food and water availability, water and soil quality, carbon sequestration, air pollution, and the sustainable use and management of natural resources. Studies are often performed in collaboration with other disciplines as well as with other universities, federal agencies and international organizations.
We study the drivers of vector-borne illness such as human-animal-environmental interactions, climate change, population growth, land use/cover changes, and alterations in disease vector ecology.
Our research explores the human values, beliefs, norms, attitudes, and behaviors associated with natural resources management to address contemporary environmental problems and inform decision-making.
Sustainability is a core value of all CFWE research which seeks to investigate ecological and social systems to inform management and policy decisions for the sustainable use of resources.
Our faculty are experts in using geospatial technologies to assess land use, watersheds, and vegetation cover to solve natural resource and environmental issues.
