Summary The National Science Foundation (NSF) proposed a National Research Council workshop as a way to help researchers to incorporate effective educational components into their research proposals. The goals were to help principal investigators to design educational endeavors that would broaden the impact of science and to foster collaboration and communication among researchers and educators. The scientific theme of the workshop was biocomplexity. NSF defines biocomplexity as referring to "the dynamic web of often surprising interrelationships that arise when components of the global ecosystem -- biological, physical, chemical, and the human dimension -- interact. Investigations of Biocomplexity in the Environment are intended to provide a more complete understanding of natural processes, of human behaviors and decisions in the natural world, and of ways to use new technology effectively to observe the environment and sustain the diversity of life on Earth."
