How are plants and animals responding to climate change? How will these ecosystem shifts affect the climate?
Science at NCEAS
Since 1995, NCEAS has supported over 500 projects addressing wide-ranging scientific questions in ecology and environmental sciences.
While only a sampling of our work, a significant body of influential, highly-cited research has been produced in the following thematic areas:
How do marine ecosystems function? How can we better manage the use of these ocean systems to continue to provide jobs, protein, transportation, and recreation?
What can we learn about the interactions between infectious disease, humans, and their environments?
What is the value of natural resources to society today?
How can we conserve biodiversity and manage scarce resources in the face of growing uncertainty?
