Long Term Agroecosystem Research Overview
- Agroecosystem productivity is sustainably enhanced by the development and application of new technologies
- Mitigation and adaptation of agroecosystems to climate change is improved by more accurate predictions of resource responses to system drivers
- Stronger linkages to other long-term research networks improves conservation and environmental quality in agricultural landscapes
- The socio-economic viability of, and opportunities for, rural communities are enhanced through educational outreach by LTAR scientists and collaborators
LTAR Research Sites
Data from the following LTAR sites are presented. They are related to topics such as agricultural sustainability, climate change, ecosystem services, and natural resource conservation at the watershed or landscape scale.
