01/23/13 -  

Reed Perkins, Professor of Environmental Science, and colleagues from Yap, Federated States of Micronesia had their grant "A Watershed-based Approach to Food Security and Biodiversity Protection" approved by the U.S. Forest Service.  As sea levels rise, Yap faces two simultaneous challenges: 1) salinization of low-lying agricultural areas, and 2) the arrival of Outer Islanders dislocated from their coral atolls.  The 3-year project was ranked #1 out of 65 proposals from the USFS western states region (i.e., all states, territories, and affiliated areas west of Nebraska), and comes with a free bottle of sun screen.
