Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Abstract: Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) is an undertaking by the National Science Foundation to promote better planning of research projects and the resolution of major ecological questions requiring long time scales and broad geographic comparsions. LTER has major implications for the conduct of research on the lotic component of ecosystems and may strongly influence the development of research paradigms for landscape ecology.
