Soil, aquatic and host-associated microbes support ecosystem functions in multiple ways, and respond to environmental change with functional, population and community dynamics over multiple time scales. There is enthusiasm for understanding microbial changes at LTER sites, but barriers to doing so can be significant. As a whole group, participants in this workshop will discuss the key conceptual and operational challenges to integrating microorganisms into long-term studies; and in breakout groups, will work to define informative times, places and methods for microbial sampling and analysis in ecosystems representative of different LTER sites. We will clarify steps forward for understanding microbial responses to long-term change.
