Abstract

This is a collaborative international LTER project to develop a coordinated network of sites addressing hurricane effects and responses. A supplement award to the Luquillo LTER in 2008 provided resources for a meeting of U.S. and Mexican scientists in Merida, Yucatan that initiated a cooperative approach to the study of the effects of hurricanes on tropical forests. The meeting established a strong core group of researchers committed to establishing a network of sites and scientists to expand, improve, and synthesize research on hurricanes and their effects (see report at http://lno.lternet.edu/merida). A second meeting is being held in 2009, supported by a supplement award to FCE and LUQ LTER. The goals of this second meeting will be 1) to complete the manuscripts under development, 2) to expand the working group to include additional ecologists and social scientists from the Greater Caribbean Basin, and 3) to maintain the momentum that the first meeting provided until we obtain longer-term funding.
