Long-Term Ecological Research and Ecological Theories: Converging on New Paradigms

Feedback form is now closed.
We will present a broad synthesis of the major theoretical framework(s) developed and tested across LTER sites for specific ecosystems and organisms. Participants from each site should come prepared to discuss (i) the motivation for theories used at their site, (ii) how long-term research is integrated into the theoretical framework (if at all), and (iii) which of the datasets from the LTER 5 cores areas of research (primary production, inorganic nutrients, organic matter, populations and communities, and disturbance) are most important for explaining both the site-specific theoretical framework and the importance of long-term data collection to the theory.
