The capacity of ecosystems to deliver essential services to society is already under stress. We have seen many species go extinct, regime shifts, tipping points and loss of ecosystem services in the recent past. Climate change, caused mainly by anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, further exacerbates these trends. These biophysical changes and associated change in the distribution of natural wealth will have a wide range of economic and social and profound demographic impacts driven by natural resource availability.  Our research monitors and tracks the changing status of ecosystems and services including remote sensing of wild fires, change of water quality, wetlands, deforestation and global food production. We work with local communities, NGOs, foundations and national governments to provide data, models and suggestions for managing natural resources under uncertainty.
