Department Head: Jon Tanaka
The Department of Ecosystem Science and Management integrates rangeland ecology and watershed management, soil science, and entomology. The students' education is enhanced by learning not only of students' discipline but also how their discipline relates to others. The research increasingly tackles the information gaps that are at the frontiers of science and management that lie in the connection between disciplines. The extension programs offer integrated options needed to face real-world problems that are often not separated along scientific disciplinary boundaries.
