The emerging interdisciplinary field of Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research, abbreviated LTSER, aims at observing, analyzing, understanding and modelling of changes in coupled socio-ecological (or human-environment) systems over longer, i.e. at least decadal, sometimes even centennial, periods of time. LTSER is focused on interactions between societies and ecosystems at various spatial and temporal scales. By including long-term monitoring, historical research, forecasting and scenario building, empirical and conceptual research as well as participatory approaches, LTSER aims at providing a knowledge base that helps to reorient socio-economic trajectories towards more sustainable pathways.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars and practitioners engaged with Long-term Socio-ecological Research to discuss the state-of-the-art in terms of science and practice, and to build stronger links between the two.

Full details of this workshop are available on the SYKE website. The deadline for registration is 05 May 2011. Please register online using this form.
