The Ecosytem Management Research Institute is a non-profit organization that specializes in describing, mapping, and restoring native ecosystem diversity and conducting ecological assessments to support appropriate human land uses and landscape-level biodiversity conservation efforts. Our goal is to provide the best available scientific information and data to support land-management decisions. We believe that even the most complex land management issues can be addressed using practical, scientifically-sound frameworks to help guide fair and effective solutions. The key to maintaining or restoring ecosystem services and providing wild and working landscapes into the future, especially in the age of climate change, will be enhanced with an understanding of historical conditions and the cumulative changes to the landscape over the last 100+ years.
To accomplish our mission we’ve assembled an expert and innovative staff, with access to a diversity of additional affiliated personnel throughout the U.S. and Canada.
