Changing climate may expose forests to increased stress, potentially leading to major mortality events, tree recruitment failures, and loss of ecosystem function or biodiversity. Tree responses likely depend on interspecific interactions, such as competition, facilitation, antagonism, etc., which may alter their sensitivity to environmental stress. This workshop aims to bring together LTER ecologists to identify opportunities and barriers for studying species interactions and climate change in tree communities using long-term data. Goals of this workshop include (1) exploring how existing long-term tree data are used to examine species interactions, (2) identifying the potential for additional strategic data collection to address key questions, and (3) discussing potential mechanisms for cross-site analyses, including LTER, NEON, US Forest Service Experimental Forests, and ForestGeo plots.
