Ecosystems & Evolution

How can we better understand the complex interdependencies between humans, other animals, plants and microorganisms? How are human activities and climate change affecting plants, animals and ecosystems? What are the best ways to protect and restore these ecosystems, or help them adapt, so we can conserve them and maintain the ecosystem services they provide as part of nature's contributions to people?

The UCD Earth Institute’s multidisciplinary community of researchers are working to answer these questions.
