IBES supports research to understand the interactions between natural, human and social systems. Our teaching programs prepare future leaders to envision and build a just and sustainable world. We cultivate strong research in five disciplinary areas: Conservation Science, Land Change Science, Climate Science, Environmental Health, and Institutions and Human Behavior.
This January, eighteen undergraduates from three different universities and multiple disciplines immersed themselves in the natural classroom of Norway’s Arctic coast.
In nature, who eats what—and why? An IBES lab is using field experiments and cutting-edge genetic analysis to answer questions like these, all in an effort to inform better conservation decisions.
