Title: Social science in the context of the long term ecological research program

Author: Gragson, Ted L.; Grove, Morgan;

Date: 2006

Source: Society and Natural Resources 19:93-100

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: This special issue of Society and Natural Resources brings the results of long-term ecological research with an explicit social dimension to the attention of the social scientific research community. Contributions are from the Baltimore Ecosystem Study LTER, the Central Arizona-Phoenix LTER, the Coweeta LTER and the Northern Temperate Lakes LTER. The range of practice represented at these four sites serves to identify commonalities and differences in the results as well as the experience of integrative research. The objective of this special issue is to extend a call to social scientists of all kinds to engage with the LTER program in long-term research and synthesis to help answer the urgent and intriguing questions of our day.

Keywords: LTER, long-term research, synthesis, integrative research, regional science
