The Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies: : The world is a changing place. Interactions among the air, water, soil, plants, and animals around us are changing in complex ways that profoundly affect environmental quality, human health, and economic activity. The ecosystem approach, used holistically to investigate these interactions, is the most powerful method for analyzing environmental change.

Founded in 1983 by the eminent ecologist Dr. Gene E. Likens, the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies is a world-renowned leader in applying the ecosystem approach to some of society's most pressing problems, from the quantity and quality of freshwater resources to the health of our forests. The unbiased scientific information produced by our scientists is essential to sound environmental policy, management decisions, and education curricula.
