Research Theme: Biosphere

Here is an atmospheric-level view of all the Biosphere
research and happenings at INSTAAR.

The study of ecosystems; effects of organisms on their environment and vice versa; biogeochemical cycles—pathways by which water, carbon, nitrogen, and other substances move through the world; and environmental indicators—species that, considered together, tell us about an environment.
