Contest Theme: Biodiversity and Human Wellbeing
"Biodiversity includes genetic, species and ecosystem diversity. Simply put, rare is more than an impressive collection of plants and animals. We significantly contribute to preserving local genetic diversity of species, and cover a range of ecosystems including forests, cold water streams, and tall grass prairie. Research opportunities exist to examine the multifaceted relation between humans and biodiversity. Most obviously, biodiversity provides us with numerous resources we rely upon, but it also has many social benefits, such as cultural and recreational values."
