Collaborative Research: ABI Development: A toolbox for analysis of long-term ecological dynamics using the Kepler Workflow System

Principal Investigators:

Matthew B. Jones, Scott L. Collins, and Corinna Gries

Ecological communities are highly dynamic in space and time. Analysis of spatial variability has a long history in ecology, yet because of the historical dearth of long-term, well- documented, on-line datasets we know comparatively little about rates and patterns of temporal change in ecological communities. Fortunately, an expanding array of long-term datasets is now available through sources such as the LTER Network and LTREB program. This growing availability of high-resolution (annual) temporal data sets creates new opportunities to address... more
