Disturbance ecology at LTER sites: efforts at network-wide synthesis of long-term data

Final Report (Required, .pdf format only) : 
Debra Peters

Disturbance ecology is a central theme at all LTER sites, yet disturbance datasets are often not standardized such that synthetic analyses and comparisons across sites are challenging. The goal of this workgroup is to bring together scientists collecting and maintaining long-term datasets on disturbance in an effort to develop effective formats for standardized datasets that can be included in the EcoTrends project. A second goal will be to initiate these multi-site comparisons across different disturbance events in the form of a draft manuscript. Participants should come prepared to discuss and compare their long-term datasets on disturbance.  We hope that all sites will send at least one participant to this workgroup.
