2019 Annual Harvard Forest Ecology Symposium

Celebrating 30 Years of the Harvard Forest LTER Program

This year, we look back on the history of the Harvard Forest Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program as we move into its fourth decade. Talks and panel discussions will feature lead investigators from the first decade of HF LTER – including John Aber, Emery Boose, David Foster, Jerry Melillo, Knute Nadelhoffer, Tim Sipe, and Steve Wofsy – and current investigators, to highlight key insights, outcomes, and future plans.


We are at capacity and are no longer accepting RSVPs. Contact Audrey Barker Plotkin ( to be placed on a wait-list, and don't forget: we will be live-streaming the symposium!

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.
