DOINews: Powell Center Funding Opportunity for Research on Sage-Grouse

2/10/2014


The DOI Climate Science Centers
and the USGS Ecosystems Mission Area
are interested in promoting synthesis activities surrounding
questions about the implications of climate change effects on Greater
sage-grouse and sagebrush habitat in the semi-arid west
. They are
coordinating with the Powell Center
to provide funding for a Working Group on this topic. A working group
would synthesize existing climate science as it relates to Greater
sage-grouse and the sagebrush habitat that supports the species with a
consideration for how climate change may be altering the sagebrush
ecosystem.


We encourage teams of scientists working at the
intersection of climate science and sage brush/sage grouse to consider
developing a Powell Center Working Group proposal
related to this topic.

Information pertaining to the Powell Center
can be found at powellcenter.usgs.gov. The deadline for proposals is April 30, 2014 for Working Groups starting
in FY15.
All Powell Center Working Group proposals will be reviewed by
the Science Advisory Board. Please refer questions to Jill Baron or
Marty Goldhaber (jill_baron@usgs.gov, mgold@usgs.gov).@usgs.gov>@usgs.gov>
