National Academies Research at Multiple Scales Webinar
The National Academies will host the second of three webinars in a series on 6/15 (12:30-5:00 pm ET) about how biological (e.g., ecological, evolutionary) research at multiple scales (e.g., molecular to global) can inform the development of a continental scale biology.
Leading scientists from the US and other countries will highlight frontier research efforts and insights related to practices that have been used successfully to translate knowledge and methods from small-scale biological research to regional- and continental scales, challenges that prevent uptake of these practices and specific research questions that could serve as pilots for implementing research projects that integrate one or more successful practices.
This webinar will focus on the applications of networks, theories, analytical and sampling tools, and data integration approaches to continental scale biology, and challenges that limit their applications. This event will provide a platform for creative collaboration among experts from multiple fields, organizations, and sectors. It will also lay a foundation for the report of the National Academies Committee on Research at Multiple Scales.
