A local research project is getting millions of dollars to study how climate change effects desert land ecosystems.

The U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich announced the $6.4 million grant will be given to conduct research at the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge north of Socorro.

The research will be led by scientists from UNM who will examine the ecological consequences of rising temperatures.
