Humans have altered the planet in possibly irreversible ways, prompting the idea of the Anthropocene. There are both indirect and direct effects of the Anthropocene on the environment. Indirect effects (e.g., increased greenhouse gases) can affect protected and unprotected areas. However, direct effects (e.g., overfishing) can be prevented in protected areas. This workshop will discuss the hypothesis that protected areas are more resistant/resilient to anthropogenic forces than unprotected areas because they do not experience as many direct human effects. As many LTER sites are protected, we will explore available data to assess the differential impacts of the Anthropocene on protected vs. unprotected areas in a variety of ecosystems.
