Land Resources

The land resources program within the Center for Water and the Environment focuses on understanding interactions among the forest communities of the northern lake states, the lake, river and wetland resources contained therein, and the shifting mosaics of human land use and natural disturbance that drive the ecological and economic health of the region.


Specific research areas include:


We work closely with federal, state, and local governments, non-profits, and private industry and individuals, to ensure that sound ecological principles are incorporated into the land-use decisions that drive the natural resource-based economy of our region.
