Over the last several decades, disturbance has become a commonly recognized driver of the dynamics of ecological systems. Long-term ecological research is uniquely positioned to address the three challenges of disturbance: (1) that events can be both positive and negative, (2) that theoretically frameworks are comprehensive enough for driving empirical generality, and (3) that disturbance can alter systems differently as environments change. This session will review examples of how LTER has advanced understanding of disturbance, work through a refined theoretical framework for improving synthesis of disturbance across different types of systems, and contribute toward a publication that highlights the value of long-term research in
