Anthropogenic factors are altering ecosystems globally, and LTER sites have been foundational in forming our understanding of changing ecosystems. At the same time, logic suggests that exposure to anthropogenic factors can alter ecosystems by eliciting rapid adaptation to changing conditions. Despite decades of study, eco-evolutionary processes have rarely been integrated into LTER frameworks which may limit our ability to predict or explain the response of ecosystems to ongoing global change. This workshop invites people working at any scale (-omics to ecosystems) interested eco-evolutionary dynamics. The workshop will start with a series of short presentations on LTER eco-evolutionary research and reports from two EVO-LTER workshops, with the majority of time focusing on how to best leverage existing frameworks, building collaborative networks, designing cross-cutting and collaborative experiments, and overcoming obstacles in LTER to better integrate eco-evolutionary dynamics.
