SFWS research is conducted in partnership with nine affiliated research centers and cooperatives. With nearly 100 faculty members, research professionals and graduate students actively engaged in research within their diverse areas of study, the SFWS consistently ranks within the top two units on campus for extramural funding per faculty member. In terms of publication citations, 15% of SFWS faculty rank in the top 10% of all Auburn faculty and nearly 40% rank in the top 25%. Our research, which ranges from biological, ecological, and geospatial to socioeconomic and policy aspects of forestry, wildlife, and natural resources conservation, is primarily focused to help society develop a sustainable future.
