Ecosystem Health

There is a fundamental interdependence between the well-being of people, livestock, wildlife and the environment. These ecological interrelationships are challenged by climate change, global mobility, economic priorities, and other threats. Ecosystem Health cluster researchers utilize transdisciplinary, systems-based approaches to understand how human choices and a changing environment impact the health and sustainability of people, as well as domestic and wild animal species. Their discoveries are shared with a diverse group of stakeholders and deployed to ameliorate the impact that these threats have on ecosystem health.
