New study: UNH ranks second nationally in ecological research and scholarship. Ecosystems & Society faculty Serita Frey and Scott Ollinger talk about that honor.
Environmental data is free and available online through NH EPSCoR's Data Discovery Center.
New research shows that land conservation can help reduce nitrogen in Great Bay Estuary.
Two PSU graduate students conducted stakeholder interviews to help the Squam Lakes Association gather data for a management plan update.

New research shows that climate change is altering the transition period from winter to the new growing season in ways that could have ecological, social, and economic consequences.
EPSCoR researcher Scott Ollinger will lead a team of UNH researchers on a new $1.25 million NSF grant to understand the impact of forest biodiversity on climate change.
Natural services, such as flood mitigation and water filtration, can not only be cost effective compared to engineered methods but also tend to come with other benefits. What's your natural capital?
dry stream bed
UNH researchers want to know how climate change will affect water quality of streams in NH. But as those streams have dried up in this summer’s drought, collecting data has become limited.
