Ecology and Evolutionary Biology


This grant proposal, submitted to the National Science Foundation in 1959 by Dr. Jane Claire Dirks-Edmunds, requested funding to continue an ecological study at Saddleback Mountain. Dirks-Edmunds requested $15,570.05 to fund weekly trips with students to the site in order to collect meteorological and synecological data on the forest; she anticipated the project would last two years.

Dr. Dirks-Edmunds graduated from Linfield College in 1937; she returned to teach in the Biology department at Linfield from 1941-1974.
