The Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network, www.lternet.edu, has released its new Decadal Science Plan, which maps out the Network's science agenda for the next 10 years. Titled "Integrative Science for Society and the Environment(ISSE): A Plan for Research, Education, and Cyberinfrastructure in the U.S. Long-Term Ecological Research Network," the plan makes an ambitious call for research that extends the Network's foundational strength in ecology and environmental biology to also embrace the sociological sciences relevant to human-environment interactions. David Foster, Harvard Forest Director, participated in the writing team for the Plan and the ISSE. Read the entire press release.
