Ariana E. Sutton-Grier, PhD

Ariana Sutton-Grier is an ecosystem ecologist and the Program Coordinator for the Climate Research & Development Program in the USGS Ecosystems Mission Area.

I am an ecosystem ecologist broadly interested in how human-caused environmental change is affecting ecosystem function and the ability of ecosystems to provide the ecosystem services on which we depend. I am also interested in ecosystem service measurement and valuation, and how ecosystem services can be included in environmental markets and other policy opportunities. I am a "social science- and engineering-friendly" ecologist who loves to collaborate, working with multidisciplinary teams to find societally-relevant solutions to the world's pressing problems including climate change.
