Watch our new film for the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON)!
Scientists face constraints in their work, often limited by the time and funding they can devote to data collection. These constraints extend to the kinds of questions they can ask and problems they can solve. NEON (www.neonscience.org) breaks the constraints of data collection by offering open-access, quality-controlled, consistent, and diverse environmental data, designed to foster discovery and collaboration. Here we showcase 3 scientists revolutionizing the way ecology is done in the field and in the lab through their work with NEON.
