HERS is funded by the National Science Foundation

The HERS Research Coordination Network is an international collaborative effort dedicated to connecting natural scientists, economists, sociologists, statisticians, modelers, and resource managers to work together to develop a global understanding for what governs ecosystems responses to tropical cyclones. Additionally, we aim to share and synthesize a growing, publicly available database on ecosystem responses to tropical cyclones as part of our core effort. We hope to connect people globally by organizing multi-day and multi-timezone??? workshops, conferences, and webinar events to explore three focal interests:

  • Interactions among ecosystem pre-storm conditions and storm characteristics on ecosystem responses
  • Roles of eco-evolutionary history, life history, and biodiversity on ecosystem responses
  • Feedbacks among natural and social-economic systems that confer resistance and resilience to tropical cyclones
