This workshop accompanies a poster describing an ongoing, multi-authored book project encapsulating activities in the first 35 years of the LTER Network. The book, edited by Robert Waide and Sharon Kingsland, will explore, explain, and analyze different aspects of the history of the LTER program both prior to 1980, when it was created, and since 1980, as it has developed. Our broad goal is to assess and explain how LTER developed in the way it did, how problems and challenges were addressed, and, where appropriate, to offer commentary on what might have been done differently and what lessons can be learned from the past (both from successes and failures).
