The Washington Biologists’ Field Club (WBFC), organized in 1900, annually provides competitive grants to support field research on the natural history of the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States. The WBFC welcomes proposals that consider aspects of natural history, systematics, biodiversity, ecology, or environmental issues. Studies focusing on organisms occurring on Plummers Island, Maryland, and the Potomac River drainage typically have priority, but research projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic are considered. The WBFC is particularly interested in studies increasing knowledge of the biodiversity and natural history of poorlyknown taxa. 2019 awards supported studies of nightcrawler identification; diversity of bluegill sunfish; effect of climatic change on phenology, agricultural pests, and parasitoids; coastal marsh to open pond vegetational transitions; peptide diversity in salamanders; effects of urban noise on catbird songs; taxonomic status of crayfish species; and fungal drivers of orchid evolution.
