Global Change on Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecosystems
This Request for Applications (RFA) specifically focuses on nonlinear ecological responses to global change. The purpose of this collaborative research program is to collectively understand how and when nonlinear ecological changes, in response to climate change and variability, affect ecological systems and their associated services. In this context, it is critical that researchers consider the abrupt changes in ecological, biogeochemical, or ecosystem processes, rather than in abrupt changes in climate, and that the changes can be linked to effects on ecosystem services and natural resource management.

New requirement to submit many grants through Grants.gov
Effective October 1, 2005, many, if not all, federal proposals must be submitted through grants.gov. Many agencies have already been using grants.gov for selected submissions. In order to download the application package from grants.gov, a copy of the Pure Edge Viewer must be installed on your computer. The link can be found near the bottom of left-hand side of the page at the following link: http://www.grants.gov/Apply
Some general information to note regarding submissions to Grants.gov:
1. The grants.gov system is a portal only and will not store or house the proposals. It is simply used as a vehicle for submission.
2. Individual users do not need any special registration to download application packages or search for opportunities.
3. Only one person can work on the proposal at a time.
4. When filling out the forms on grants.gov, any field shown in yellow must contain information, even if N/A.
5. Please be sure that all forms have been moved to the "Mandatory Completed Documents for Submission" section prior to sending the file on cd for upload.
