Tracking foundation species dynamics from the mountains to the oceans in rapidly changing LTER sites

Feedback form is now closed.
Foundation species, such as micro- and macroalgae, grasses and sedges, conifers, mangroves, and corals are dominant, habitat-forming organisms that ameliorate stress to facilitate whole communities of associated species. Speakers in this workshop will share their insights about how foundation species are responding to climate change, habitat loss and degradation, eutrophication, shifts in food webs and other pressures at LTER sites from the mountains to the oceans. Participants will also start working towards a white paper summarizing how foundation species’ cover, composition and effects on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning are responding to these disturbances at LTER sites.
