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…

Transitioning @DataONEorg from a ‘project’ to a ‘program’. @metamattj talking at #DCM2019 about how DataONE will continue to support the community and grow the federation.


The @ESIPfed summer meeting starts tomorrow. Can't be there? Follow the twitter stream on #ESIPfed. Lots of side meetings happening today, including @DataONEorg and @EDIgotdata with @USLTER information managers.

So thankful for the hard work and good spirit of the 30+ students, staff and faculty who helped in the seagrass synoptic this year. You make this long term research, now for nearly 20 years, a success! @vcrlter @USLTER https://t.co/7wDstut4i3

Mass summertime fish die-offs across 359 Wisconsin lakes are attributable to high lake temperatures during periods of extreme heat, reports a @NatureClimate study. Die-offs are projected to double by 2050 and quadruple by 2100 in north temperate lakes. https://t.co/33Cs8WhyJ4
