Thanks to grants from the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, interdisciplinary teams will conduct research on problems ranging from climate change and disease transmissions to harmful chemicals and household energy efficiency.
Study highlights that paying attention to current and future regional climate can help decision-makers expand agriculture in ways that minimize harm to, and maybe even benefit, particular at-risk species.
Field has been deeply involved with national and international efforts to advance science and assessment related to global ecology and climate change. His research emphasizes impacts of climate change, from the molecular to the global.
To combat climate change, the next president should pave the way for cleaner energy, Stanford experts say. This will require public-private partnership on research and electric utility competition at the state level.
