1977 Long Term Ecological Measurements Conference Report
A group of scientists representing many areas of ecology met March 16-18, 1977 to discuss fundamental issues concerning long-term ecological measurements. The report of this conference is divided into two parts: (1) a summary statement from the entire co nference; and (2) specific recommendations regarding terrestrial freshwater and marine ecosystems, prepared by different sections of the conference.

Data Management at Biological Field Stations
This report presents the results of deliberations at a workshop held in May 1982 at Kellogg Biological Stataion to address what is perceived as a general problem of omission at field research site--that of data management. Data management has not had a very high priority at most established field research stations and only recently has there been a coordinated effort to develop data management systems among sites identified in the NSF-supported Long Term Ecological Research network.

LTER DataBits Fall 1989
This is the premier issue of an LTER-wide version of DATABITS. Its purpose is to disseminate information relevant to data manangement between data managers and PI's within the LTER network. DATABITS can only be as successful as members of the LTER community make it. If you come across a tidbit of news, a good software package or a hardware hint that might be of some general interest, please send a paragraph or two to the editor for inclusion in the next DATABITS.

10. Proceedings of the 1990 LTER Data Management Workshop
Held in Snowbird, Utah July 26-28, 1990. The LTER Program is unique in that it represents a network. An explicit goal of the LTER program is to study ecological processes that require measurement over long periods of time (years to decades to centuries). The LTER Data Managers recognized these two aspects of the LTER program and devoted their 1990 LTER Data Managers Workshop to the discussion and resolution of several associated problems and challenges in meeting these objectives.

Scientific Database Management (Final Report)
On March 12-13, 1990, the National Science Foundation sponsored a two day workshop hosted by the University of Virginia, at which representatives from the earth, life, and space sciences gathered together with computer scientists to discuss the problems facing the scientific community in the area of database management. This report summarizes the discussion which took place at that meeting.
