Department of Natural Resources, Cornell University

Data Center Description
The Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University began as the
Nation's first college of forestry (1898-1903). It evolved into the
Department of Forestry (1911-1948) and the Department of Conservation,
(1948-1970), before becoming one of 17 departments in the SUNY College
of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University, in Ithaca, New

Research in the Department of Natural Resources ranges from basic
ecological science, to considerations of policy and economic aspects
of resource conservation and management. The multidisciplinary nature
of applied work is well evident as a balance of fundamental, basic
research on ecological and environmental principles, combined with
consideration of application(s) of what we have learned in a broader,
applied context.
