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.
