Wissinger Receives NSF Grant for Collaborative Research with Undergraduates

The National Science Foundation recently announced that Professor of Biology and Environmental Science Scott Wissinger was awarded a three-year grant for $388,016 for collaborative research with undergraduates. The grant, titled “Consequences of Climate-Induced Range Shifts on Multiple Ecosystem Functions,” will provide the opportunity for nine Allegheny students to conduct summer research with Professor Wissinger and his collaborators on how climate change-induced elevational shifts in species distributions are affecting the ecology of alpine ponds and wetlands near the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in Colorado. The total cost of the grant-supported research is $388,016. The grant supports 100% of the total project cost.
