Our Mission:
Our research aims to increase understanding of human and natural resource interactions for the purposes of enhancing ecological and human health. Our research ranges from the value of individual trees in the city to the implications of broad-scale changes in forest cover types for climate change. We take an “all lands approach” to understanding the role and values of public access to nature across the urban to wildland gradient.
