Long-Term Ecological Research Symposium at NSF Headquarters

The Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Symposium, Discovering the Nature of Ecosystem Change, will be held at the National Science Foundation (NSF) Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia on March 21, 2017. Featuring five talks from researchers across the LTER Network, the symposium will highlight the role of long-term research in recognizing what stresses may allow ecological systems to recover and which are more likely to irreversibly transform them. Events such as sea-level rise, drought, and fire cause changes to ecological systems that can be further exacerbated by a changing climate. Visit the symposium website for more information.
