Inland Empire Tree Improvement Cooperative
Regional reforestation challenges are met by this collaborative membership-driven group committed to applying crop breeding techniques for best outcomes.
Kennedy LIFE Lab - Laboratory for Integrative Fish Ecology
Through interdisciplinary research, productive collaborations, and innovative approaches the Kennedy LIFE Lab seeks a better understanding of ecological processes in fish and aquatic sciences. Current projects attempt to understand mechanisms that control population dynamics, the creation and maintenance of biodiversity, and diverse life history strategies in aquatic systems. The LIFE lab maintains a full service laboratory for analysis of hard part microchemistry across a wide variety of ecological applications. Services include sample preparation and cutting-edge analysis using thermal ionization and laser-ablation mass spectrometry for trace element and isotopic analysis of otoliths and other hard part samples across numerous taxa.
