  • National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) (1543)

    In response to grand challenges in ecology and the environmental sciences, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has proposed that Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction (NSF-MREFC) funds be used to implement a new and unprecedented research and education platform—NEON, the National Ecological Observatory Network. NEON will be the first national ecological measurement and observation system designed both to answer regional- to continental-scale scientific questions and to have the interdisciplinary participation necessary to achieve credible ecological forecasting and prediction. As such, NEON will transform the way we conduct science by enabling the integration of research and education from natural to human systems, and from genomes to the biosphere. Social scientists and educators will join ecologists and physical scientists in NEON planning and design and participate as observatory users, recognizing that we live on landscapes that are, to varying degrees, human-dominated ecosystems.
