Environmental Justice across the LTER Network: long-term and multi-scale understandings of past, present, and future.
Environmental justice (EJ) is the principle that all people have the right to equal protection from environmental laws and the right to participate in environmental decision making. A major component of EJ is the study of environmental equity, the analysis of the spatial distribution of environmental hazards (disamenities) in

The Sensitivity of Ecosystems to Climate Change: Bringing LTER Observations and Experiments to Bear on Predictive Capabilities
(1) What have LTER observations told us about the climate sensitivity of ecosystem processes at different time scales?; (2) What have LTER experiments told us about the climate sensitivity of ecosystem processes at different time scales?; (3) What progress has been made in bringing LTER observations and experiments to bear on improving the ability to predict the response of ecosystems to scenarios of future climate change?

Shrub Expansion and Dynamics Across the LTER Network: A Cross-Site Synthesis of Patterns, Mechanisms and Consequences
The general goal of the workshop was to complete and extend our cross-site synthetic research begun in previous meetings supported by this x-site program. At the end of the workshop we decided to plan to host two additional workshops in order to (1) finish a manuscript based on our previous analysis of the ecological consequences of shrub expansion in grasslands and (2) to strategize regarding additional data collection needs to strengthen our synthetic database focused on LTER and non-LTER sites across North America.
