This chapter aims at examining the U.S. Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program. The LTER is a network of sites and scientists that have been engaged in conducting site-based scientific research from 1981. The chapter describes the lessons that are learned from this program and discusses the future prospects of collaboration in relation to planned environmental observatories such as the National Ecological Observatory Network. The LTER was created and designed to promote better understanding of important ecological changes and processes that impact the environment. The scope of functions of scientists working in the LTER program has undergone significant changes since its creation.
