Synthesizing long-term community data: questions, challenges, and advances

Feedback form is now closed.
Community dynamics play out over multiple years and long-term data sets are invaluable for understanding the processes that influence biodiversity across space and time. The LTER Network has supported the collection of long-term community data for decades, and these data form the basis of several LTER Synthesis Groups investigating biodiversity–ecosystem functioning relationships, community stability, and metacommunity ecology. In this workshop, we will hear how the synthesis groups and other researchers within, and outside of, the the LTER community are studying community dynamics. We’ll also discuss how to better leverage long-term data for deeper understanding of biodiversity across LTER sites and for inspiring future synthesis efforts.
