The Institute of Environmental Sciences (IES) works to promote research and teaching in environmental sciences in agriculture. It does so by combining the diverse research approaches of the over 40 research laboratories that comprise the institute. Some of the issues that we tackle include (but are not limited to): finding solutions to the agricultural and environmental challenges of the 21st century, focusing on climate change and its effect on agriculture and open spaces, the need to provide healthy and sufficient nutrition to an expanding world population, and preservation of natural resources in a country that is going through fast urbanization.
