Terrestrial Ecosystem Health Group

This is a UVM-based group of faculty, scientists, and students whose interests provide a trans-disciplinary, multi-scale approach to assess and understand interacting terrestrial communities.

Goals
  1. Move science and understanding of ecosystems forward by taking a whole system approach to explore the intricacies of terrestrial communities
  2. Establish a cross-linking framework that increases the depth and breadth of our collaborations
  3. Provide prospective, current, and former students and faculty with an academic, social, and professional network
Actions
  1. Understand the structure and function of ecosystems
  2. Detect and assess fluctuations within and among ecosystems
  3. Evaluate how native and anthropogenic factors may influence the overall dynamics of ecosystems processes
  4. Provide framework for best management practices
  5. Communicate our science-based results to diverse audiences
