SNRE Professors Receive Seed Grants for Climate Research

Monday, July 7, 2014

Dr. Don Falk and Dr. Dave Christianson have both received seed grants from the University of Arizona Office of the Senior Vice President for Research. The Faculty Seed Grant program provides awards of up to $10,000 which are made on a competitive basis for projects involving research or other creative scholarly activity. The Program is intended to provide short-term, one-time support that will "jump start" worthwhile projects and result in data or work products that can be used in developing major proposals for submission to extramural funding agencies or private contributors.

Dr. Falk's proposal is titled, “Can climate and wildfire interact to trigger ecosystem tipping points?” and Dr. Christianson's proposal is “Climate effects on herbivores via spatio-temporal variation in primary productivity."
