We explore & discover

The Department of Global Ecology, founded in 2002 on the campus of Stanford University, conducts basic and applied research into the interactions among Earth's ecosystems, land, atmosphere, and oceans, and people. Department faculty members, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate students, plus technical and administrative staff, work to understand how our planet operates, and how it will respond to future changes.
