GLIN==> Sigurd T. Olson Loon Research Award



Request for Proposals for the 2002 Sigurd T. Olson Loon Research Award

The LoonWatch program of the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute at
Northland College is accepting proposals for the 15th annual Sigurd T. Olson
Loon Research Award.  This award program is named after biologist Sigurd T.
Olson, whose 1952 paper with William H. Marshall, The Common Loon in
Minnesota, continues to be cited as one of the premier baseline reports on
the biology of the Common Loon.  

Since 1986, the STO Award has provided funding for original research that
leads to better understanding and management of loon populations.  We are
accepting proposals for research on any of the Gavia species in North
America.  Research on behavior, breeding ecology, migration, winter ecology,
and evolution of loons are considered, as are education proposals relating
to loons and their aquatic habitats.  Proposals addressing human impacts to
loons will be given special consideration, particularly those dealing with
water level fluctuation, recreational use of lakes, and shoreline
development.  Maximum grant award is $3,000. Proposal deadline is January
18, 2002.
