Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics: Research in Marine LTERs

Feedback form is now closed.
A growing awareness of the important feedbacks that occur between ecological and evolutionary processes in ecosystems (eco-evolutionary dynamics - EED) has recently opened many ecologists’ eyes to the possibility of observing how rapid evolution could change ecosystems on observable times scales. With LTER investigators being uniquely positioned to address EED due to long term data collection at study sites, we will 1) present eco-evolutionary studies that are either on-going or emerging at marine LTERs, and 2) examine the benefits of long-term measurements to examine evolutionary change. We hope to provide a horizon scan of how the study of eco-evolutionary dynamics might be a new and important direction in long term ecological research.
