Institute for Ecological Monitoring and Management

Our Mission

We use cutting-edge research methods and meaningful community and stakeholder engagement and collaboration to advance climate adaptation, sustainability, and conservation for California’s communities and natural landscapes.

Science in Service

IEMM performs its mission of science in service by linking SDSU scientists with California communities, resource managers, and planners.

Through robust partnerships, IEMM addresses current challenges related to climate change, sustainable communities, and conservation of biodiversity. Drawing from extensive expertise across the SDSU campus, we provide technical, scientific, and analytical assistance.
