Division of Environmental Systems Fact Sheet
NIFA's Division of Environmental Systems (DoES) advances knowledge in natural sustainable resources, the environment, and conservation. The division supports research, education, and outreach that involves air, water, soil, and wildland resources to advance the sustainability of agricultural, forest, and range production systems. DoES-supported projects help America meet its needs in the face of increasing competition for water, accelerated soil erosion, reduced biological diversity, loss of habitat, and other issues that may significantly affect agricultural sustainability and production.
DoES’ priorities include improving air and water quality; developing sustainable ecosystem services; maintaining soil health and productivity; improve the understanding of agricultural microbiomes; and improving the management and sustainable use of forests, wildlife, and rangelands.
