We pursue research to enhance the stewardship, understanding and appreciation of wild ecosystems. Our projects focus on terrestrial ecosystems and plant communities, links between biodiversity and human well-being, and the implications of interacting global and regional environmental changes. We work with a wide range of NGOs, government agencies, land managers and community members to bridge strong science to effective action.
