Our research project on Staten Island, NY about urban ticks and the risk of Lyme disease has been awarded an research grant by the National Science Foundation's Dynamics of Integrated Socio-Environmental Systems (CNH2) programme. These funds will allow us to continue and expand our efforts. CNH2 supports research that advances a basic scientific understanding of integrated socio-environmental systems and the complex interactions within and among the environmental and human components of these systems.
This project is done in collaboration with Kacey Ernst (University of Arizona), Mary Heyden (University of Colorado), Kevin Berry (University of Alaska Anchorage) and Holly Gaff (Old Dominion University).
