Andrea Lloyd’s Research Receives NSF Funding

Andrea Lloyd (Biology) and colleagues involved in the Bonanza Creek Long Term Ecological Research site in Alaska have received funding from the National Science Foundation for a project titled Regional Consequences of Changing Climate-Disturbance Interactions for the Resilience of Alaska’s Boreal Forest.  The project is part of the NSF-LTER program, which provides ongoing support of basic scientific research and monitoring in key ecosystems around the U.S.   The grant will enable Andi and one undergraduate research assistant to study how climate change and disturbance by insect herbivores are affecting productivity in the forests of central Alaska.
