Agriculture and the Environment

 

MSI PI Jonathan Foley, Director of the Institute on the Environment, has been profiled by Time magazine in an article that appears on their website. The article discusses Foley’s research into the problem of how to maintain food production while at the same time avoiding damage to the environment. Professor Foley and his research group have been using MSI in order to run computer models of the impact of land-use change in the southern Amazon region of South America.
