2011-04-07 The Department Of Ecology And Evolutionary Biology Is Pleased And Proud To Announce That Three Of Its Graduate Students Received The Very Prestigious And Highly Competitive NSF Pre-doctoral Fellowships For 2011
Professor Stephen Hubbell, Assistant Researcher Brant Faircloth, and collaborators awarded a $400,000 grant from NSF
Professor Stephen Hubbell, Assistant Researcher Brant Faircloth, Jim Kellner (University of Maryland), and Greg Asner (Carnegie Institution for Science/Stanford University) were awarded a $400,000 grant from NSF entitled: “Collaborative research: Remote sensing of foliar chemistry to reconstruct the genealogy of canopy trees in a Neotropical rain forest”.
This three-year project will study individual variability in foliar chemistry of trees within the tropical rainforest landscape of Barro Colorado Island (BCI), Panama to determine whether this variation is better explained by genealogical relationships, environmental conditions, or an interaction between the two. Results from this work will provide a relatively deep-time perspective on genealogical relationships among trees in a diverse tropical forest while facilitating a better understanding of the importance of functional and environmental variation in determining geographic patterns of foliar chemistry in tropical forest canopies.
