goals of tegner grant program
Fund research to reconstruct past population or ecosystem states (historical baselines)

Empower young natural and social scientists to conduct short-term, high-impact research directly relevant to conservation

“... no matter how well one understands kelp populations, any current program will fail to discern the ghosts of missing animals.”

(Dayton, Tegner et al. 1998)

Goals of Tegner Grant Program

Previous Tegner Grantees
  • Drs. Catherine R. Samson and Graham J. Edgar - University of Tasmania in Hobart to study changes in marine habitats in SE Tasmania since European settlement by taking cores of in marine sediments;

  • Dr. Peter Auster and Ivar Babb of University of Connecticut-Avery Point and Dr. Les Watling of the University of Maine, to study the historic distributions of deep-sea corals off New England before destructive bottom trawling became widespread.
