I am a sucker for those movies where all the superheroes join forces to fight evil and save the world from destruction.
Maybe this explains why I love learning about regional and global science cooperatives, collaboratives, and partnerships.
Its sort of the same thing only researchers don't wear spandex outfits, and their superpowers are linked data sets.
I just learned about another one that focuses on the impact of nutrients on grasslands called NutNet. 100 sites!
This recent post from the College of the Environment at the University of Washington about NutNet got me thinking what our scientific superheroes involved in ALPINE can do to thwart environmental evil in the region as they join forces with their RCP allies.
