US and French long-term ecological research networks agree to share knowledge and skills
Date:2/28/2013

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 28, 2013The U.S. Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network and the Zone Atelier network (ZA-LTER France) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) committing the two networks to share knowledge and skills through collaboration among sites and scientists.

"We are very pleased to establish a more formal working relationship between the US and French LTER networks," said Scott Collins, Chair of the LTER Science Council, who signed the MoU on behalf of the U.S. network.

Speaking on behalf of Gudrun Bornette, the scientific director of ZA-LTER France, former director Yvan Lagadeuc added: "Our goal with this signature is to confirm our common commitment to new projects and also exchanges of collaborators and skills."

The LTER Network was created by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 1980 to conduct research on ecological issues that can last decades and span huge geographical areas. The Network brings together a multi-disciplinary group of more than 2000 scientists and graduate students, and the 26 LTER sites encompass diverse ecosystems in the continental United States, Alaska, Antarctica and islands in the Caribbean and the Pacificincluding deserts, estuaries, lakes, oceans, coral reefs, prairies, forests, alpine and Arctic tundra, urban areas, and production agriculture.

The ZA- LTER France network was created by the French ministry of research in 2000. It is now managed by the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and its Institute for Ecology and Environment. Currently comprising 11 member sites and more than 600 collaborators (researchers, engineers, technicians, and graduate students), the network offers a diversity of socio-ecological systems allowing long-term research on ecology and interactions between humans and nature.

The two Networks' envision a society in which long-term ecological knowledge contributes to the advancement of the health, productivity,
