About the MSP LTER
The MSP LTER is part of a network of LTER sites funded by the National Science Foundation working together to broaden our understanding of the nation’s ecological services. It brings together dozens of researchers from the University of Minnesota, University of St. Thomas, USDA Forest Service, The Nature Conservancy, and Water Bar, to study how urban stressors affect the ecological structure and functioning of urban nature, including pollinators, urban forests, urban watersheds, and lakes and streams.
