Supporting Environmental Science at Yale

The Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies (YIBS) is the umbrella environmental science center on campus. We support and inspire the environmental community at Yale through research and training, grants and fellowships, and weekly seminars and events. We use a collaborative and cross-disciplinary approach to study the entire biosphere: from molecules to landscapes, and everything in between.
