The National Science Foundation has awarded $20 million in grant money to a group of Missouri universities to fund a climate research study. With the funding, “The Missouri Transect: Climate, Plants and Community” study will focus on climate variability and its various potential impacts.

Participating universities include all four University of Missouri campuses, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis University, Lincoln University in Jefferson City and the St. Louis Science Center. The collective will make use of each school’s strengths in climate, plant biology, community resilience and education/outreach research.
