The East River study site in the Colorado Rockies spans thousands of feet in elevation and includes shrub, forest and alpine ecosystems.

The Department of Energy has featured Boise State on its Office of Science homepage as a “University Research” headline.

The department recently awarded grants to the university’s Department of Geosciences. The grants will support research on changing climate conditions and demands on water, food and energy use.

Alejandro Flores, an associate professor in the Department of Geosciences, said the grants will help Boise State join forces with researchers at other federal research facilities and universities addressing other facets of these scientific challenges.

“In some sense, these grants allow us to become part of this much larger team,” said Flores. “It’s an amazing group of researchers, and Boise State is now a part of it.”
