Harvard Forest Long-term Ecological ResearchEntry ID: USDA0597
Abstract: Harvard Forest research focuses on historical and modern changes in Central New England forests, resulting from human and natural disturbance. The data in "Harvard Forest Long-term Ecological Research (LTER)" are used to perform research on long-term climate change, disturbance history and vegetation dynamics; comparison of community, population, and plant architectural responses to human and ... natural disturbance; forest-atmosphere trace gas fluxes; organic matter accumulation, decomposition and mineralization; element cycling, fine root dynamics and forest microbiology.
Collection Organization: Harvard Forest LTER. Institutional Affiliations include: Harvard University; Universities of New Hampshire and Massachusetts; The Ecosystem Center, Marine Biological Laboratory.
Collection Methodology: Multiple research activities funded by the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy (National Institute for Global Environmental Change), U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Northeastern Consortium for Undergraduate Science Education (Pew Charitable Trust), A.W. Mellon Foundation and the R.T. Fisher Fund of Harvard Forest.
