Lake Tanganyika NSF Biodiversity Grant Awarded to Lisa Park Boush

As part of a multi-university team, Park Boush is the recent recipient of nearly $2.5 million in funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a project that will track ancient oxygen levels and life within Lake Tanganyika in eastern Africa, illuminating how its biodiversity adapted to past climate change. With this knowledge, the team will be able to predict the effects of human-caused climate change on the ecosystem of the lake, on which millions of people depend as a food supply.
