Surface In-Situ Networks
The Central Arizona–Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research (CAP LTER) project is one of 24 long-term sites funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). LTER sites have tended to focus upon pristine locations well removed from the myriad effects brought about by extensive human modification and dominance of ecosystems. The CAP LTER site provides a unique addition to the LTER research by focusing on an arid-land ecosystem profoundly influenced, even defined, by the presence and activities of humans and is one of only two sites that specifically studies the ecology of urban systems.
