N Texas acreage to be part of ecological project | AP Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
excerpt from above:
Quote:
What was once Dust Bowl farmland in North Texas is poised to be on the front line of one of the nation's largest ecological projects.
Over 30 years, the rolling prairies and woodlands of the Caddo-LBJ National Grasslands will serve as part of a living, changing laboratory in the first-ever continental ecological observatory.

The National Ecological Observatory Network is designed to increase understanding and forecasting of the effects of climate change, biodiversity, land-use changes, invasive species, pollution and other issues, said Dr. Michael Keller, chief scientist of the Boulder, Colo.-based nonprofit organization.

The project is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, an independent agency that directs federal funding for research.
