The Montana Institute on Ecosystems and partners have developed a fact sheet, "What is an Ecosystem," that helps explain concepts related to ecosystem science and climate change. For its research projects, the Montana Institute on Ecosystems has delineated four major Montana ecosystems: the Crown of the Continent, the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the Upper Missouri, and the High Plains Ecosystem.
The NSF WildFIRE PIRE (Partnerships in International Research and Education) project is an international partnership focused on the causes and consequences of fire in the past, present, and future. The WildFIRE PIRE project has developed podcasts to showcase the project and communicate science to diverse audiences. Click the button below to see all of the WildIRE PIRE podcasts.
The Montana Institute on Ecosystems develops and participates in numerous science-for-the-public opportunities, including hosting guest scientists and being a partner in events such as Family Science Night and Expanding Your Horizons. We work with partners ranging from National Geographic to the Montana Girls STEM Collaborative to disseminate educational resources and generate conversations about relevant IoE research projects and results.
