The Florida Coastal Everglades Long-Term Ecological Research (FCE-LTER)
project is a collaboration of over 120 researchers, students,
and technical staff. The team studies the ways in which hydrology,
climate, and human activities affect ecosystem patterns in the
estuarine ecotones, or regions where freshwater and saltwater
mix, of the Florida Coastal Everglades. In addition to collecting
data, conducting experiments, and building models, the FCE-LTER
team also distributes data to other scientists, presents research
results at scientific conferences, publishes papers in peer-reviewed
journals, trains graduate students to be professional scientists,
and provides education and outreach to the south Florida community.
We link FCE science with Everglades Restoration to provide reliable, continuous, and growing knowledge transfer from basic ecological theory to the development of more effective environmental management and restoration/rehabilitation programs.

All Scientists Meeting
Presenting research at conferences is an important way
for FCE-LTER scientists and students to disseminate
information about the results of their work. Large conferences,
such as the Ecological Society of America meetings and
the Estuarine Research Federation meetings, provide
an outlet for communicating FCE-LTER research results
to hundreds of other scientists. Not only does this
help garner support for the project, but it also helps
the project to grow as new collaborations are forged.
In addition, presenting at conferences helps students
who are learning to become independent scientists improve
their communication skills.
