Research in the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences covers an exciting mix of fundamental research that investigates how organisms and ecosystems function, more applied research that investigates ecosystems with practical and management outcomes in mind, and environmental social research that investigates the human element of ecosystems. Our research portfolio also includes a number of large research programs that we conduct in partnership with local government, industry or federal agencies. Our activities are supported by state-of-the-art facilities and research infrastructure.
