SEV-EDGE_A

The Extreme Drought in Grassland Ecosystems (EDGE) experiment is replicated at 6 sites in NM, CO, WY, and KS. It is one among many ecosystem manipulations that will be incorporated into the synthesis study.

MCM-stream-sampling-credit-barb-woods

The Von Guerard stream at the McMurdo Dry Valleys LTER site represents one extreme of the poles-to-tropics extent encompassed by the Si in streams synthesis project.

EMERGENT-graphic

The Ecological Metagenome-derived Reference Genomes and Traits (EMERGENT) synthesis project connects genomic information about the soil microbiome with the broader ecological context.

SGS_rainout

Rainout shelters at former Shortgrass Steppe LTER site are used to simulate extended droughts and observe changes in ecosystem productivity and species composition and are part of a distributed network of over 100 sites across the globe.

SGS_control

Rainout shelters at former Shortgrass Steppe LTER site are used to simulate extended droughts and observe changes in ecosystem productivity and species composition and are part of a distributed network of over 100 sites across the globe. Similar structures without plastic panels serve as controls.

Matta_site-view

Researchers use rainout shelters at the Matta International LTER site in Israel to simulate extended droughts and observe changes in ecosystem productivity and species composition. The Matta site is part of a distributed network of over 100 sites across the globe inspired by long term experiments of the U.S. LTER Network. Similar structures without plastic panels serve as controls.
