Leveraging a Network of Networks to Enable Innovations in Macroecology
hosted by Víctor Ortega-Jiménez
We are at an exciting moment in the discipline of ecology with federal and global investments in ecological observatory networks broadly distributed across space and, for some networks, time. This talk will focus on how leveraging this network of ecological observatory networks has the potential to advance macroecological insights with examples of synergies related to biodiversity science across the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network, and beyond.
