The Merriam-Powell Center for Environmental
Research (MPCER) promotes cross-disciplinary research and education to
understand critical environmental processes and the implications of change
resulting from human activities. Additionally, the MPCER has been instrumental
in developing and supporting infrastructure needed to advance both research and
education. Through its efforts, the MPCER is helping to create the scientific
knowledge and understanding needed to address significant environmental challenges,
including climate change and biodiversity loss. Since its inception, the
geographic focus of the MPCER has expanded beyond the Colorado Plateau to
include research sites in places as far away as the Mariana Islands.
The Merriam-Powell Center for Environmental Research is a proud co-sponsor of the 12th Biennial Conference of Science and Management on the Colorado Plateau!
