A Climatic Analysis Of Long-Term Ecological Research Sites
The Long-Term Ecological Research Program (LTER) funded by the National Science Foundation's Division of Biotic Systems, is mandated to pursue ecological research over long time periods at a variety of sites throughout the United States. Climate research is recognized by both ecologists and climatologists as having a key role in long-term ecological research. Each LTER site maintains its own climate program and at many sites climate data represent the longest data set available.

2. The Climates of the Long-Term Ecological Research Sites
The Climates of the Long-Term Ecological Research Sites. 1987. Report maintained on-line Each LTER site maintains a climate database and at many sites climate data represent the longest data set available. Increasing attention to possible ecological consequences of global change requires an understanding climate variabilities and the potential for rapid directional climate change. This electronic report describes climatic variability, climatic change scenarios, and individual climate and water budget analyses performed at 18 LTER sites. Greenland, D.

Data and Information Management in the Ecological Sciences: A Resource Guide
More than 100 individuals attended a two-day workshop (August 8-9, 1997) entitled Data and Information Management in the Ecological Sciences that was held at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Objectives of the workshop were to: effect technology transfer, especially at biological field stations and marine laboratories; facilitate people networking; communicate training needs and opportunities; identify future needs for data management at field stations; and produce hard copy and digital versions of the proceedings.

Research Metadata in Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) 1997
Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Sites manage a diverse array of ecological information resulting from research on ecological succession, disturbance, landscape ecology, elemental cycling, trophic structure, biodiversity, organic matter and primary productivity. Since its inception in 1980, the LTER Network has evolved from a primarily site-based research focus to a network and cross-site focus. Coincident with this evolution has been the development of metadata standards.
