FCE LTER All Scientists Meeting

Group of scientists at FCE LTER meeting

Over 100 collaborators, students and staff from 20 institutions attended the annual Florida Coastal Everglades Long Term Ecological Research All Scientists Meeting on May 8-9, 2019 at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The meeting focused on presentations of long-term data, questions prompted by their findings and why these questions matter to different research groups.

Each afternoon, participants divided into small breakout groups and discussed possible questions and hypotheses for each research group while providing feedback on a new conceptual diagram of FCE research. During the first day of the meeting, each student gave a three-minute synopsis of their poster in FCE’s first poster jam. Several awards were later distributed to “People of the Year” and “Student Posters”.
