Ecosystem Science Cluster
See program guidelines for contact information.
The Ecosystem Science Cluster supports research on natural, managed, and disturbed ecosystems, including those in terrestrial, freshwater, and wetland (including salt marsh) environments. Descriptive and manipulative approaches in field, mesocosm, and laboratory settings are supported, with the expectation that the bulk of the research is question- or hypothesis-driven. Proposals are encouraged, but not necessarily required to incorporate new or existing quantitative or conceptual models for the purpose of integration or synthesis.
