Ag and Energy

Our global environment includes the totality of living and non-living things that make up the world we live in. Work in our Institute advances understanding of how factors such as the changing global climate and human activities have and will continue to impact the environment, ecosystems, and individual species. Research in this area also focuses on the development of sustainable food and biofuel sources, environmental resources we cannot live without.
