LTER sites, and long-term data in general, are uniquely valuable for planning and evaluating ecological restoration. The goals of this workshop are to 1) summarize datasets from restoration activities across LTER sites to synthesize common elements and 2) develop a list of long-term data types that can be used to inform restoration across terrestrial, aquatic, and marine ecosystems. We will consider how long-term data can be used to set restoration goals and project responses to restoration activities. We will evaluate how long-term data can be used to inform the spatial and temporal scales of restoration, including the variation in time required to restore different aspects of an ecosystem, barriers to restoration, and measures of success. Our synthesis across LTER sites will be used to outline elements of a conceptual model for applying long term data from diverse ecosystems to inform ecological restoration and to develop a plan for future synthesis efforts.
