The Powers lab joined a team of scientists headed by Dr. Catherine Graham (SUNY Stonybrook) in submitting a grant proposal to NASA to study how hummingbird populations respond to climate change. It was recently announced that the grant, which was for $1.4 million, was going to be funded. The Powers lab will receive approximately $250K ($60K of which are matching equipment funds from GFU) over four years which will be used for physiological studies in North American, Mexico, and South America. Funds from the grant will be used to purchase equipment, pay for travel, and support several students. To read the complete press release from George Fox University click here.
