Long-Term Studies Section Of The Ecological Society Of America

Nature is dynamic and often changing, especially these days. Understanding how nature changes requires data and ideas examining change at time scales ranging from years to millennia. The Long-term Studies Section brings together people interested in the long-term dynamics of how everything from species to the biosphere (and everything in between) changes. Our aim is to be a nexus for bringing together ecology and paleoecology, ecology and evolution, and spatial and temporal perspectives to tackle one of the biggest challenges of our field: figuring out how nature will change in the future.

Feel free to poke around the site, join our section when you renew/join ESA, or contribute to our twitter feed (@esa_ltss) highlighting papers that may be of particular interest to this section.(info on that coming soon)
