I spent several days this past week at the Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTER) All Scientists Meeting (ASM) in Estes Park, Colorado. The LTER is a network of 25 sites around the United States and further afield – I’m involved as the environmental history co-PI on the McMurdo Dry Valleys LTER. This was my third ASM meeting, and I’m starting to feel at home, despite being a historian rather than an ecologist. Along with Anita Guerinni from Oregon State University I helped to run a session on history and the LTER network. We’re hoping to put together a workshop on this theme with the aim of producing an edited collection about history and the LTER network. If anyone is interested in this topic, please get in touch.
