Our members conduct research in ecosystem ecology, ecosystem response to global change, carbon sequestration and bioenergy, wildlife ecology, aquatic ecology, invasive species ecology, ecosystem restoration, decomposition processes, and community ecology.

Our Mission:

“To promote understanding of ecosystem function through education and research at Michigan Technological University.”

The Ecosystem Science Center (ESC) is designed to advance our understanding of how ecosystems function and how human activities influence ecosystem processes. The Center’s two main objectives are to:

(1) foster ecosystem research and

(2) educate graduate and undergraduate students in the area of ecosystem science. These two objectives will be met through collaboration among faculty, staff and students interested in ecosystem science.
