Ecosphere paper on art at FSMLs

Fred Swanson has an essay in the Ecological Society of America's Ecosphere this month, on the past and present state of art at field research (and other) sites.

Titled, "Confluence of arts, humanities, and science at sites of long-term ecological inquiry", this paper was informed in part by the survey of FSML art programs we did recently, so thanks for participating! The publication is a fantastic synopsis of where we are and where we've been, which will be very helpful as we move forward with art/science integration.

Fred has a past ESA paper from 2008 that might also be of interest: "Bridging boundaries: scientists, creativewriters, and the long view of the forest" discusses the excellent Long-Term Ecological Reflections program:
"Developed as an analog to the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the Reflections program attempts to bridge the sciences and humanities in places like the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest LTER site (Oregon) and Mount St Helens (Washington State), where participants reflect, share ideas, and write."
