Arlington. Va.—Water management in Florida's Everglades, remediation of acid mine drainage in the western U.S., and marine reserves in coastal ecosystems are some of the topics that ecologists will explore February 26th, at a symposium on the "Application of LTER Science to Ecosystem Management." The symposium will be held at the National Science Foundation (NSF), which funds the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program. Scientists from LTER sites across the U.S.--H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest in Oregon, Niwot Ridge in Colorado, Kellogg Biological Station in Michigan, and many others--will discuss applications of LTER results to ecosystem management.

Journalists are welcome to attend any or all of the symposium. Registration is necessary, to gain access to the NSF building. A complete agenda is available by e-mail.

The LTER symposium is the fourth such annual review of LTER science to be held at NSF headquarters, and will build on the successes of the first three symposia.
