    Institute of Ecosystem Studies


    Founded in 1983 by the eminent ecologist Dr. Gene E. Likens, the Institute of Ecosystem Studies (IES) is a world-renowned leader in applying the ecosystem approach to some of society’s most pressing problems, from the quantity and quality of freshwater resources to the health of our forests. The unbiased scientific information produced by IES scientists is essential to sound environmental policy, management decisions, and education curricula.

    Globally relevant, IES research is truly science in the service of society. A society that understands and appreciates ecological systems is much more likely to protect them for future generations. To learn more about the Institute, browse through our web content on IES research, educational opportunities, on-site attractions, staff publications, scientific lectures, development opportunities, and more.

    For more detail about IES’ collaboration with other scientists on the Baltimore Ecosystem study, see:
