Ecosystems Center Scientists Investigate Effects of Climate Change on Important Arctic Plants
A new project of Ecosystems Center Postdoctoral Scientist Thomas Parker and Associate Scientist Jim Tang investigates the impacts climate change will have on different populations of the dominant arctic sedge, cottongrass (Eriophorum vaginatum) and whether populations of cottongrass adapted to specific local arctic conditions will survive under climate warming.

The Ecosystems Center and a Century of ESA

Formed in 1915 through the vote of several members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the ESA is now the largest professional society devoted to the science of ecology, with more than 10,000 members.
