Environment and Ecology

Faculty in three colleges work on challenges related to environment and ecology.  In 2011, NMSU had $16 million in current funding from 44 sponsors in support of ecology and environmental research.  Key environmental and ecological research projects include the economic and environmental impacts of climate change on New Mexico; operation of the New Mexico Climate Center; The Southwest Regional Gap Analysis Project, tasked with mapping and assessing the biodiversity of a five-state region in the southwest; a bi-national assessment with Mexico on southwest regional air quality; studies of long-term ecological research sites in the Jornada Experimental Range; processes and patterns in North American monsoons; and research integrating climate science to facilitate decision making and risk mitigation.
