Many ecological processes operate on timescales of years to decades, making it difficult for short-term studies to accurately forecast the effects of environmental change on ecosystem structure and function. In this talk, Mueller will use a series of exemplary studies to provide examples of critical knowledge that can only be gained by repeated observations of long-running experiments. Case studies will be discussed for a variety of ecosystem types, including alpine meadows, grasslands, and forests.
