In the arid Southwest, and around the world, we are increasingly aware of the human imprint on the environment. Research with the School of Natural Resources and the Environment addresses both grand challenges and applied problem solving in environmental sciences by integrating across the boundaries of biology, physical science, resource management, and international resource issues. We respond directly to the demands of society for solutions to natural resource issues through scientific discovery, applications research, teaching, stakeholder engagement, and cooperative extension.
