The Earth Institute Center for Environmental Sustainability is recognized for building environmental leadership and solving complex environmental problems through innovative research and education programs. This work is largely possible because of the generous support of the National Science Foundation and others. The following is a list of the center’s current federal support:

NSF RCN: TraitNet—Coordinating Trait-Based Ecological and Revolutionary Research

NSF Collaborative Research: Testing Biodiversity-Ecosystem Functioning Relationships in an Ecological Stoichiometry Framework in the World’s Largest Natural Grassland

NSF CNH: Fires in Western Amazonia: Understanding and Modeling the Roles of Climatic, Social, Demographic and Land-Use Change
