Integrating Biology and Social Science Knowledge (BioSS) | RSF - 0 views

  •  
    The Russell Sage Foundation (RSF) has long had the mission to improve social and living conditions in the United States. It pursues this goal by supporting outstanding research in the social sciences that explores how social, economic, and political factors affect the lives of Americans and their children. Support of such research remains the Foundation's core focus. RSF also has a long history of encouraging new scientific advances to strengthen the methods, data, and theoretical core of the social sciences.
    Two recent intellectual developments have prompted RSF to launch a special research initiative that integrates knowledge from the biological and social sciences. First, there has been a paradigm shift in the life sciences, spurred by the realization that many biological processes, rather than being fixed, immutable mechanisms that consign people to particular life outcomes, are instead fluid, dynamic responses to features of the social and physical environments humans inhabit. Second, this shift led researchers to launch interdisciplinary studies that seek to integrate approaches from the social and biological sciences, recognizing the potential for a deeper understanding of how social inequalities are initiated, maintained, and transmitted from one generation to the next.

Planting strategies for drought-resistant ponderosa pine - 0 views

  •  
    The objectives of this Agreement are to improve the resilience of once-forested areas under warming and drying climate by collecting seeds from trees located in BAND that appear to drought-resistant, propagating those seeds, and planting seedlings that are within the natural range of variability for the biophysical setting of BAND, but may be better suited to the warmer drier site; and to conduct research that will inform future restoration projects in post-burned areas. In accordance with Section 4.4.2.2 of MP2006, the genetic type used in these plantings would approximate the extirpated genetic type because all of the seeds will have been collected from within BAND and the seedlings will be planted within the natural range of variability for those species. Replanting would occur on sites severely burned during recent human-caused wildfires in BAND. These fires have burned with uncharacteristic severity, the extent of which is far outside the range of historical variability. Recovery along a natural successional pathway is impeded by the extent of the high-severity patches.

Long-Term Ecological Research - 0 views

  •  
    NSF currently supports 28 LTER sites, and the solicitation is open to renewal proposals only. To address ecological questions that cannot be resolved with short-term observations or experiments, NSF established the Long Term Ecological Research Program (LTER) in 1980. Two components differentiate LTER research from projects supported by other NSF programs: 1) the research is located at specific sites chosen to represent major ecosystem types or natural biomes, and 2) it emphasizes the study of ecological phenomena over long periods of time based on data collected in five core areas. Long-term studies are critical to achieve an integrated understanding of how components of ecosystems interact as well as to test ecological theory. Ongoing research at LTER sites is expected to contribute to the development and testing of fundamental ecological theories and significantly advance understanding of the long-term dynamics of populations, communities and ecosystems. It often integrates multiple disciplines and, through cross-site interactions may examine patterns or processes over broad spatial scales.

Sacramento River Monitoring and Restoration of Juvenile Habitat - 0 views

  •  
    A project to improve juvenile fish habitat on the mainstem of the Sacramento River in Shasta and Tehama Counties has been in development for a few years. The dynamic river system has been monitored and mapped with the goal of protecting the early life history of threatened and endangered salmonids from flow fluctuations. The mainstem Sacramento River from River Mile 230 to 300 is impacted by dam operations as part of the USBR Central Valley Project. At this time, partnerships are being built to start to work on the next phases of the project. These partnerships involve many landowners who each own a small section of this 70 mile section of river. Monitoring will continue and sites with willing landowners will be designed to have a downward slope so that juvenile fish will be able to swim out with the outgoing flowing water. Steps to comply with the necessary environmental compliance regulations will also be undertaken. Funds for this project are expected to be available within the next few months. In the future, additional funds for implementation at additional sites may also become available (approx. $300,000 per year for the next 2 years). Additional incremental funding may be provided for restoration of juvenile habitat which will include the tasks of planning, environmental compliance, design, project management and construction. Juvenile salmonid habitat along the mainstem Sacramento River is a high priority for the Central Valley Project Improvement Act and the Anadromous Fish Restoration Program (CFDA 15.648).
