The Alabama Center for Ecological Resilience (ACER) released the first fact sheets in its fact sheet series in an effort to share the emerging research from the seven ACER research groups. The series will include a total of 15 fact sheets.

In the first fact sheet, ACER introduces its mission and shares the importance of diversity and resilience to our research.

Each subsequent fact sheet released will include details on an individual research group including an overview of their field and laboratory or mesocosm experiments, preliminary results, key words and pictures of the team at work. The fact sheets are an excellent classroom resource for science teachers on current research in the northern Gulf Coast and for those with a general interest in oil spill research.

Currently, ACER has released three fact sheets: Introducing ACER, Consumer Group and Wetlands Group.

Stay tuned for more to come in the new year.
