Environmental Research


Environmental Research, like ecology, is a broad field of study that examines the structure and function of the natural world, and relationship between the human civilization and our environment. This is the body of research that provides much of our understanding of biology and earth systems science.

Areas of environmental research include topics such as geography, geology, climate change, air quality, development, ecosystem management, regulation, food and agriculture, forestry, and waste management.
