Announces funding for Strategic Network Grants (SNG)

NSERC Strategic Network — Canadian Network for Aquatic Ecosystem Services: Canada’s ecological systems provide many of the highly valued natural resources that drive Canada’s economy. While the loss of biodiversity and the impacts on healthy ecosystems and wildlife habitats have traditionally been well-documented, the impact on the delivery of services and products of social and economic significance remains poorly understood. Lead researcher Donald A. Jackson (University of Toronto), along with network collaborators, will develop new tools and knowledge about the relationship between aquatic ecosystem services and the stressors that affect them. These will help inform policies on the development of Canada’s natural resources in regions where rapid economic development is underway.

This network is receiving $4.4 million and brings together 18 researchers from 11 Canadian universities, along with 10 scientists from six federal and provincial government departments. Two industrial partners, three Canadian environmental associations and a provincially funded technology futures organization are also involved.
