WELCOME TO PRCEN
The impacts of environmental degradation and climatic variation on the biosphere and its inhabitants remain poorly understood. As a major interface between organisms and their surroundings, the nervous system can provide sensitive and reliable measures of biological responses to environmental perturbations. The CREST Puerto Rico Center for Environmental Neuroscience (PRCEN) was originally established to promote dialog and collaboration between the neuroscience and environmental science communities across campuses of the University of Puerto Rico The PRCEN Phase I initiated a discourse that did not previously exist among researchers and students from these two disciplines. The PRCEN Phase II will benefit from lessons learned and will reinforce communication across fields and campuses to broaden and amplify its impact on the emergent field of environmental neuroscience and prepare the next generation of scientists to sustain it.

Final Progress Report 2019-2020
Multidisciplinary network hosted by the Ecological Society of America (ESA) SEEDS (Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity and Sustainability) program.
Graduate students and early-career scientists (within 8 years of Ph.D.) from diverse underrepresented groups are invited to join a multidisciplinary network hosted by the Ecological Society of America (ESA) SEEDS (Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity and Sustainability) program.
The ESA SEEDS Interdisciplinary Power of Data Research Travel Awards* takes advantage of the theme of the 2020 ESA Annual Meeting: Harnessing the Ecological Data Revolution, to be held from August 2-7, 2020+.
Participants will be able to explore opportunities for collaborative research using big data now available in the ecological sciences.
