Luquillo LTER

CZO Partner Organization


The goal of the Luquillo Long-Term Ecological Research Program (LUQ) program is to determine how changing climate and disturbance regimes interact to drive ecological change in natural and human modified landscapes in tropical montane ecosystems. This enhanced mechanistic understanding will supply critical information to manage and conserve ecosystems of the Luquillo Experimental Forest as well as other montane forest ecosystems undergoing similar changes.
