Projects at this location
|Ecosystem Research Grants||
EPA funds ecosystems research grants to protect ecosystems and the air and water resources that provide numerous benefits for humans and other living things.
|Office of behavioral and social sciences research||
The missions of the office is to Enhance the impact of health-related behavioral and social sciences research, coordinate behavioral and social sciences research conducted or supported by the NIH, integrate these sciences within the larger NIH research enterprise, and Communicate health-related behavioral and social sciences research findings to various stakeholders within and outside the federal government
|Coping with Drought in Support of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS)||
This program is focused on advancing NIDIS regional drought early warning systems through a better understanding of how to better provide early warning through enhanced language, metrics and joint decision spaces (e.g., calendars, etc.).
|Fish and Wildlife Service||
The US Fish and Wildlife Service works with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
Opportunities for funding may be found under the following programs within The Catalog of Federal Assistance (CFDA)
|Resilient Agroecosystems in a Changing Climate Challenge||
This program funds research attempting to understand the interaction between climate variability and agricultural production systems to develop the plants, animals and management systems that will be robust and productive under changing environmental conditions while providing the important ecosystem services needed from these lands.
|Dimensions of Biodiversity||
The goal of the Dimensions of Biodiversity campaign is to transform, by 2020, how we describe and understand the scope and role of life on Earth. Successful proposals pursue an integrated approach to understand the interactions and feedback among genetic, phylogenetic and functional dimensions of biodiversity.
|Orchard Downs Multifunctional Landscape (ODMFL)||
The northeast corner of the Orchard Downs complex is a prime location for a sustainable land-use demonstration. The housing complexes at this corner were demolised in the late 1990s. A diverse canopy of mature trees, including red oak, sycamore, sweet gum, tulip tree, and jack pine, and grassy "no-mow" area have since grown in. The land is an underutilized educational, recreational, research, and ecological opportunity for the University.
