Adapting the “Loop Diagram” for Integrated LTER Science

Feedback form is now closed.
Since 2011, Collins et al’s Press-Pulse Diagram, or the “loop diagram”, has guided LTER efforts to integrate human and environmental science on core LTER themes at urban and non-urban sites where appropriate and desirable. The loop diagram’s framing of human-environment interactions in terms of ecosystem services has enabled LTER science to measure human benefits from ecosystems, visualize how humans impact ecosystems, and identify feedbacks between disturbance regimes and ecosystem structure and function. Recently, multiple styles of integrated social-ecological science, both within and outside the LTER network, have drawn attention to themes such as legacies, trust and interpersonal relations, and cultural dynamics, which the loop diagram does not easily accommodate. In this workshop, we will facilitate discussion on how to update key concepts in the loop diagram based on recent developments, and how to advance key conceptual frameworks that may guide LTER science into the future.
