The USDA recently announced the formation of regional climate hubs at seven locations across the United States in an initiative aimed at helping farmers, ranchers and rural communities cope with the effects of climate change. Three of these hubs are associated with Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network sites—the Jornada LTER in southern New Mexico, the HJ Andrews LTER in Oregon, and the Luquillo LTER in Puerto Rico. Other hubs are located in Michigan, New Hampshire, Colorado, and Oklahoma.
