All NRES educational and research programs center on science, applied ecology, and conservation in a variety of aquatic, terrestrial and human dominated ecosystems. Within that framework, our faculty, staff, and students study a wide variety of ecological systems with emphases on soil, water, people and social systems, forests, plants, animals, and microbes.
