Sustainable Natural Ecosystems
The Sustainable Natural Ecosystems initiative works to preserve forests, rangelands, and wetlands. SNESI research and extension efforts aim to identify and prioritize issues and solutions affecting these regions. Some of those issues include understanding and valuing ecosystem services, maintaining working landscapes, biodiversity, energy, water quality and quantity, climate change, regulations, land use change and fragmentation, and education.
Research areas include:
- Land use and habitat fragmentation
- Water supply
- Climate change
- Understanding and valuing ecosystem services
