The Center for Ecological Health Research (CEHR) is located at the University of California, Davis. It is one of four environmental research centers established in 1991 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (R819658 & R825433). The University of California, Davis is in the center of a region experiencing one of the most rapid population growth rates in the nation thus producing a high rate of urban encroachment in areas that include highly sensitive ecosystems, including the nation's most diverse and productive agricultural lands. Within a few hundred miles of UC Davis are several well known ecosystems that Center researchers are using as long-term case studies to investigate basic science questions in an applied context.
