The All Scientists Meeting of the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network convenes researchers and students from all 28 LTER sites across the country. The theme of this year’s meeting, Generations, “points to the dedication of researchers who may commit entire careers to understanding the mechanisms at work in ecosystem science.” In line with that theme, the Andrews Forest LTER program sent 35 participants that spanned generations and career stage: undergraduate students, graduate students, post bac students, graduate students, post doctoral scholars, staff, faculty researchers, and emeritus faculty. Participants attended and led workshops on topics that included climate change, cultivating systemic change in DEIJ at LTER sites, data management, ecological forecasting, arts and humanities, and coordinated distributed experiments. The All Scientists Meeting offered an unparalleled opportunity to make connections with colleagues across the LTER Network and to work together, across sites and generations, to understand ecosystems in a changing world.
