Title: Planning for connections in the long-term in Patagonia

Author: Austin, Amy T.;

Date: 2009

Source: New Phytologist

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Establishing a long-term ecological research program and research collaborations in northwestern Patagonia. A workshop in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina, January 2009. The relict flora of Gondwanda, the mystic nature of the windswept Patagonian steppe, the Andes mountains and the southern beech forests, all combined, made San Carlos de Bariloche the perfect setting for gathering researchers from North and South America to discuss a common goal: establishing a program of research and scientific interaction focused on long-term ecological questions in northern Patagonia. The meeting served as a rare opportunity to bring together a group of high-caliber scientists, ranging from population and community ecologists to ecosystem ecologists, plant physiologists and hydrologists, all of whom had a keen interest in exploring the possibilities of developing an integrated research-program in the northern Patagonian region.

Keywords: Patagonia, international long-term ecological research
