About the Department of Natural Resource Sciences

About the Department of Natural Resource Sciences

Our environment is comprised of many interacting components: interactions between the earth's atmosphere and forests or crops, between plants and other organisms in the soil, between soil properties and nutrients available to plants, between vegetation and the wildlife it supports, between ecological communities on the land and those of the rivers and lakes nearby, between microbial organisms and food, between insects, plants and animals, between human activities such as agriculture, forestry, and industrial development, and natural ecological processes. In turn, all these processes are greatly affected by the actions of governments that rely primarily on feedback from societal and industrial groups, economists, and policy experts to provide guidelines for the management of our natural resources.

The courses and academic programs offered by the Department of Natural Resource Sciences allow students to explore interactions among the components of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and governance through the development of a strong, interdisciplinary background in fundamental, applied, and social sciences.
