Regime shifts are large, persistent, and often abrupt changes in ecosystem structure and function that may be difficult to reverse. Through long term whole ecosystem experiments and measurements, NTL LTER researchers have described regime shifts involving lake eutrophication and food web structure, and have used these case studies to develop conceptual and mechanistic models. These models are used to anticipate ecosystem shifts and evaluate the utility of management actions to prevent them.
