The department brings together Bordeaux research units that focus on meeting key environmental, scientific and societal challenges of the future. Research activities cover a broad spectrum of environmental sciences and are conducted on several scales with an integrated approach to the living world, from genomes to ecosystems, including plant, animal and microbial organisms across various spatial and temporal scales (from the paleoenvironment to current or even future environments), and takes into account interactions between agrosystems, hydrosystems, ecosystems, geosystems and social systems.
In order to answer key questions in this field, the multidisciplinary community of the Environmental sciences department uses the full range of scientific and technological knowledge from all the disciplines (biogeochemistry, biology, chemistry, ecology, ecotoxicology, geology, oenology, physiology, physics, modelling, economics, sociology, etc, etc.) usually involved in this type of research work.
