Improvements in Facilities, Communications, and Equipment at Biological Field Stations and Marine Laboratories
Note Guidance on Data Management Plans
BIO has posted revised Guidance on Data Management plans (updated 2/20/13). Please review before submitting a proposal to the Directorate for Biological Sciences.
Full Proposal Deadline Date: December 12, 2014
Second Friday in December, Annually Thereafter
Biological Field Stations and Marine Laboratories (FSMLs) are off-campus facilities for research and education conducted in the natural habitats of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems. FSMLs support environmental and basic biological research and education by preserving access to study areas and organisms, by providing facilities and equipment in close proximity to those study areas, and by fostering an atmosphere of mutual scientific interest and collaboration in research and education. To fulfill these roles, FSMLs must offer modern research and educational facilities, equipment, communications and data management systems for a broad array of users. In recognition of the importance of FSMLs in modern biology, NSF invites proposals that address these general goals of FSML improvement.
