Greetings coral-listers,

Please help spread the word about the following grant opportunity!

Request for Applications: Effects of Climate Change on Ecosystem
Services Provided by Coral Reefs and Tidal Marshes
 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science  
 to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications for projects 
 that develop quantitative relationships among tidal marsh and coral     
 reef processes and their associated ecosystem services. EPA is          
 particularly interested in research that will: (1) characterize the     
 relationships between the ecosystem processes associated with coral     
 reef or marsh systems and the resultant ecosystem services they         
 provide; (2) characterize the effects of climate change stressors on    
 these ecosystem processes; and (3) provide a spatially and temporally   
 explicit framework for assessing how climate change stressors alter the 
 ecosystem services provided by these reef and marsh systems. This       
 framework may include methods for multi-attribute comparisons of the    
 effects of different stressor scenarios on ecosystem services.          
 Eligibility Information:                                                
 Institutions of higher education and not-for-profit institutions        
 located in the U.S., and Tribal, state and local governments are        
 eligible to apply. See full announcement (                              
 http://es.epa.gov/ncer/rfa/2004/2004_climate_change.html) for more
