Global Change on Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecosystems

Nonlinear Responses to Global Change in Linked Aquatic & Terrestrial Ecosystems & Effects of Multiple Factors on Terrestrial Ecosystems (EPA)


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.
