New Perspectives on Harvard Forest's Long-Term Ecological Research Program

This year, we asked emerging collaborators and early career ecologists to share their work and offer their perspective on the Harvard Forest Research Program.

Confirmed speakers include: Alix Contosta (UNH), Tony D'Amato (UVM), Robinson Fulweiler (Boston U.), Drew Guswa (Smith College), Steven Klosterman (Harvard OEB), Rich MacLean (Clark U.), Eric Morrison (UNH), Yude Pan (USFS), William Rodriguez (UMass), Ian Smith (Boston U.),  Jim Tang (MBL), and Harvard Forest's David Foster, Dave Orwig, Neil Pederson and Jonathan Thompson. 


All researchers working at Harvard Forest (LTER, staff, students and visiting scientists) are asked to submit an abstract for each of their current or proposed studies, to be published online.  This forms an important record of the scope of work at Harvard Forest.

Please submit an abstract whether or not you can attend the symposium and whether or not you’ll be presenting a talk or poster.  Submit abstracts by March 10 to be included in a listing of abstracts distributed at the meeting. 


All HF research groups are invited to bring posters to the meeting.  Undergraduate and graduate students are particularly encouraged to participate.  Plans to bring a poster can be indicated on the abstract submission form.

Please note

The Fisher Museum is in the midst of renovations. The space will be clean and functional on March 21, and we're on schedule to be painting the space the week prior to the symposium. We use low VOC paint, but are aware that this may be a consideration for people with chemical sensitivities.
