Shortgrass steppe long term ecological research
The shortgrass steppe (SGS) Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site is part of a network of long-term research sites supported by the National Science Foundation. The network consists of 26 sites representing diverse ecosystems and research emphases, yet maintaining a common mission and sharing expertise and data. We assert that the ecological structure and function of the shortgrass steppe is governed by climate, human use, natural disturbance, biota and physiography. Our conceptual framework, right, depicts the relationship between these factors and our core research areas. Poster presented ...
