Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Environmental Studies

We develop knowledge that supports the sustainable use of natural resources in a rapidly changing world. We strive for a better understanding of the interactions among ecosystems, animals and humans across the world.

We take on fundamental issues that affect all of us

The world changes rapidly and an understanding of how everything is connected is important. Our research is diverse and includes everything from studies on plants and animals to the complexity of whole ecosystems. We, humans, are omnipresent; with our actions and our behaviours we influence how ecosystems develop.

 Researchers work in forests, mountains and on water.
