Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories recently launched a call for proposals for seed grants for future research projects at the field station. These seed grants aim to spark new scientific inquiry and research at the field station and facilitate preliminary, higher risk efforts focused in up-and-coming creative spaces (e.g., techniques, emerging theory). Field stations, however, focus on places with particular qualities amenable to sustaining longer-term research.
