NSF grants foster new understanding of biological systems on regional to continental scales

FES professor Chris Still was recently awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).  To better detect, understand and predict the effects of climate and land-use change on organisms and ecosystems at regional to continental scales, the NSF Directorate for Biological Sciences recently awarded $15.3 million in 10 new macrosystems biology grants.  Since the Macrosystems Biology program was launched in 2011, NSF has made 50 such awards.
