My research and teaching focus on social-ecological systems and especially the interconnections between sustainable rural livelihoods and participatory conservation and development, in and beyond formally protected areas. The objectives of my research (conducted both in the U.S. intermountain west and overseas) are to provide relevant information and analyses to foster socially just and resilient resource management using participatory methods and collaborative conservation approaches.

Menalled, Fabian

Associate Professor
Land Resources and Environmental Sciences
Montana State University - Bozeman

Our research focuses on understanding the ecological basis of sustainable agriculture and the integrated management of weeds. This program embraces a multi-disciplinary approach to address both basic and applied problems facing the agricultural communities of Montana. The overall goal of our off-campus teaching program is to develop and deliver a research-based educational program addressing local, regional, and national concerns associated with the economic, environmental, and social sustainability of integrated weed management strategies in agronomic crops.

Miller, Perry

Professor
Land Resources and Environmental Sciences
Montana State University - Bozeman

My research and education interests center on moving toward more sustainable cropping systems by relying on crop diversity. I have keen interest in cropping system effects on rainfed soil carbon, nitrogen, and water budgets, and in strategies for adapting to climate change. My research is conducted within cropland settings strongly limited by rainfall, along the full N-S extent of the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana.
