Florida Coastal Everglades LTER - Current Working Groups
Current Working Groups
The current phase of the FCE LTER program is organized into four working groups and four
cross-cutting themes. Each working group or cross-cutting theme focuses on a set of key research
questions and/or major processes being quantified by the LTER program.
