Important Information for Proposers

ATTENTION: Proposers using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template for more than 10 senior project personnel will encounter proposal print preview issues. Please see the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information website for updated guidance.

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




The Environmental & Structural Systems thematic area focuses on the functional evolution of organisms in their physiochemical and biotic environments. Included are studies of physiological ecology, evolutionary physiology, stress physiology, functional morphology and movement, animal sensation, computational and systems neuroscience, and environmental genomics. Proposals that include computational or engineering approaches in any of these areas of biology are encouraged.

Program Directors:

R. Paul Malchow.  Animal Sensation and Movement, Computational Neuroscience, function and evolution of sensory input

Irwin Forseth.  Ecological and Evolutionary Physiology - Plants and Microbes

Dianna Padilla.  Ecological and Evolutionary Physiology - Animals
