GLIN==> Sigurd T. Olson Loon Research Award



Request for Proposals for the 2003 Sigurd T. Olson Loon Research Award

The LoonWatch program of the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute at
Northland College is accepting proposals for the 16th 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 Loon Research 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.  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 $2,500. Proposal
deadline is January 10, 2003.
