The theme of the 2021 LTER Science Council is human-environment interactions. The annual Science Council Meeting traditionally begins with a series of 5-minute talks from each site, covering some aspect of the year's theme. This year, talks are grouped into 6 general sub-themes:
> Managed ecosystems (forest, range, fisheries)/ restoration
> Historical influences/legacies
> Environmental justice
> Vulnerability to extreme events
> Human dominated (urban/cropped) ecosystems
> Other topics and late-breaking
Talks will be scheduled from 9-10 am; 11-Noon and 1-2 PM, with breaks in between for discussion, socializing, and combatting Zoom-fatigue.
