Who We Are

We are over 2000 researchers at 28 sites who apply long-term observation, experiments, and modeling to understand how ecological systems function over decades. Read All…


LTER research integrates many disciplines to understand ecological processes as they play out at individual sites, while synthetic studies reveal broader principles that operate at a global scale. Read All…


Long-term relationships with schools, community groups, resource managers, and landowners provide a foundation for innovative education and outreach programs. Undergraduate and graduate students benefit from working with a diverse and close-knit community of researchers. Read All…

To date, the headquarters has been spared from the fire, but the fire is only a quarter of a mile away and still active. Fire crews are working the area.
