Welcome to SFC CESU
The South Florida and Caribbean Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (SFC CESU) was established in 2000 under the leadership of the Department of the Interior and has led to the partnership of nine federal agencies and 21 academic institutions and non-government organizations. Together, the SFC CESU partners support a regional approach to ecosystem science and adaptive management that emphasize natural and cultural resource understanding and protection at the landscape/seascape scale.
