Water Center faculty Stephen Schoenholtz and Daniel McLaughlin are part of a team that received a seed grant from the Global Change Center(GCC)! The project is titled “Salty carbon: Testing the consequences of freshwater salinization on stream food web dynamics and ecosystem metabolism.” The investigators also include Dr. Erin Hotchkiss (Biological Sciences) and Dr. Sally Entrekin (Entomology).
Excerpt from the GCC announcement:
“Each year, the GCC solicits proposals from GCC faculty to support interdisciplinary research that will lead to collaborative proposals submitted to extramural funding sources. Selected projects link multiple faculty programs and take advantage of unique combinations of expertise at VT, have societal implications and/or a policy component, deal with emerging global change issues that have regional significance, and have high potential to eventually leverage external resources.”
