Themes - Kaupapa

Although researchers in the Environmental Research Institute come from a wide range of areas, they are united into themes which transcend ecosystem boundaries and reach from mountains to sea.

We work across terrestrial, freshwater, marine, atmospheric and antarctic systems. Follow the links below to find out more about research under these themes.

We also have a number of research groups and units within the Environmental Research Institute. Often these groups are formed to provide a focus for research in a specific area, around funded research programmes, or simply to provide students a place to interact and learn from their peers.
