University researchers anticipate environmental challenges and remedy existing ills. Their discoveries preserve ecosystems, shape policy, and avert environmental threats.
Protecting our resources. Research is key to preserving fragile balances between conservation and consumption, production and pollution, predators and prey. New knowledge empowers us to control disease, save threatened species, and keep invasives in check.
Safeguarding the public. Research provides the knowledge that makes it possible to contain or eradicate dangerous environmental contaminants.
