The H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest LTER site maintains several mailing lists to facilitate the distribution and communication of information. The specialized lists also provide a mechanism for sharing ideas and are informal forums for discussion of science issues The technical or web related issues lists were developed to address science, web, or facilities issues or questions.
- Andrews LTER Mailing Lists
- Specialized Science Group Lists
- Technical, Web Related Issues, and Other Lists
Note: In an effort to reduce the amount of email SPAM that comes across through the Andrews LTER mailing lists, Specialized Science Lists, and some of the Other Lists, these lists have been converted to Majordomo. Majordomo is a program which automates the management of internet mailing lists. This means that in order to send an email to any list, your email address (from where you are sending), must be on the lterlong list (referred to as "moderated" list). When you send an email to a "moderated" list and your email address does not match the email address on the lterlong list, the email will not be delivered and will not bounce back to you. In most cases, failed email will be evaluated and the sender will be alerted. If you are not a member of lterlong, but would like to send a message to one of the moderated lists, contact a list participant.
The Andrews LTER Mailing Lists:
- LTER Long List () - Participant List
- A broad audience informational list. It is the most inclusive list and includes all members in the ltershort, ltergrad, and lterpi lists, plus any other persons interested in the Andrews program.

- LTER Short List () - Participant List
- A wide audience list of active Andrews LTER participants including Andrews LTER researchers named in the current LTER grant (lterpi), graduate students (ltergrad), and other people currently involved or who plan to be involved at the Andrews. This list receives more frequent emails than lterlong and is used to communicate opportunities and information pertinent to people visiting or doing research or working at the Andrews such as meetings, seminars, gatherings, funding and job opportunities and site-related updates.

- Andrews LTER researchers named in the current NSF-LTER proposal or annual report. This list is used to relay information pertinent to this group (meetings, budgets, LNO activities).
