Seven PhD students and postdocs from across Cornell’s campus are this year’s Sustainable Biodiversity Fund grant recipients. These young scholars are at work on cutting-edge research to protect our planet’s biodiversity—tackling questions that include how bird populations adapt to land use, how the soil affects ticks that carry Lyme and other diseases, and how New York salamanders facing extinction might resist a fungal disease that is killing amphibians worldwide.

The Atkinson Center’s Sustainable Biodiversity Fund supports Cornell graduate students and postdocs with awards of up to $7,000. The grants encourage young researchers to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries as they take on some of the most pressing challenges in biodiversity and ecosystem conservation.
