Faculty studying ecosystems

Wyoming has long been a center for the study of nutrient and energy flux in natural and managed ecosystems. Wyoming ecologists are currently studying fluxes of carbon, nitrogen, water, and other materials in a wide array of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, as well as exchanges of energy and water between ecosystems and the atmosphere.
