Environment & Natural Resources

Recent emphases include water quality, human activities affecting wildlife populations, fire management, global climate change, and forest and land use change in the US and internationally.

We explore the ways humans affect and are affected by the natural environment and the natural resources (air, water, land, fish and wildlife, energy resources, climate) that sustain human life. We also design and analyze programs and policies that affect these relationships.
