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 are presenting a talk or poster. Submit abstracts by March 14 to be included in a listing of abstracts distributed at the meeting.
