Welcome

The Center for Ecosystem Science and Society at Northern Arizona University studies how ecosystems respond to and shape environmental and climate change and works to communicate those discoveries in new ways to local and global communities. Collaborating with national laboratories and home to state-of-the-art research facilities, Ecoss trains scientists to apply broad trans-disciplinary thinking and leading-edge methods to the pressing challenges facing Earth.


PhD Candidate Haley Dunleavy bends down to examine some of the ecological diversity of the arctic tundra. She is surrounded by green and yellow flora. There is a glacial lake and mountain range in the distance.
“At Ecoss, I learned that communicating science and making it accessible is equally as important as conducting research.” – Haley Dunleavy, PhD 2021 (READ MORE)
