This research project will provide a means to evaluate whether Nitrogen, Potassium, or both, control plant growth. The result will help to determine how much plants might contribute to mitigation of climate warming.

Investigating Responses of Pacific Salmon to Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Christine Petersen
Petersen is examining previous adaptations by salmon to changing conditions, and intends to interpret their ability to react with a behavioral or evolutionary response to future stresses. She will also identify conservation strategies that best promote resilience.
