LTER unveils a new decadal science plan
Date:12/14/2007

The Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network, www.lternet.edu, has released its new Decadal Science Plan, which maps out the Networks science agenda for the next 10 years. Titled Integrative Science for Society and the Environment: A Plan for Research, Education, and Cyberinfrastructure in the U.S. Long-Term Ecological Research Network, the plan makes an ambitious call for research that extends the Networks foundational strength in ecology and environmental biology to also embrace the sociological sciences relevant to human-environment interactions.

Through the leadership of the Scientific Task Force and Science Council chair, the plan is the culmination of three years of network-wide planning activities financed by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which sponsors the Network.

The plan outlines how LTER will direct its research and education activities to address environmental grand challenges in three topical areas: land and water use change, particularly with respect to working landscapes and urban systems; climate change including variability and the changing frequency of extreme events; and changes in nutrient mobilization and biodiversity, as particularly related to species introductions.

Through this effort we were able to achieve our goal of designing a one-of-a-kind long-term, multi-site research plan that genuinely integrates social-ecological research, said Scott Collins, University of New Mexico biology professor and task force chair.

The plan, available at http://www.lternet.edu/decadalplan/, has seven parts including an executive summary:

  1. an Integrated Research Plan that provides a blueprint for the next phase of LTER science and describes plans for network-level research into fundamental questions about socio-ecological relationships in important U.S. and international ecosystems;

  2. description of the EcoTrends project, a compendium of long-term ecologi
