Description: New REU Site Field Studies in Global Change at the Headwaters of the Mississippi
The Earth is changing rapidly and we need to understand how ecosystems and organisms will be challenged in the future. Global change affects ecological processes at many different scales, from sub-cellular to ecosystems and it is the great breadth of these scales that make understanding processes difficult. This REU site is designed to introduce undergraduate students to research into global change ecology and teach them how to deal with large and/or multiple scales and data sets. We strongly encourage participation from underrepresented groups in order to encourage their interest in global change issues and to broaden 'the human perspective' on this rapidly expanding field.
