Meet Urban Ecology Scientists

Learn how ASU scientists study and work

As an Ecology Explorer, your investigations will relate to research being done by CAP LTER scientists.

You can interact with these scientists by:

  • asking your teacher to invite an ASU scientist to visit your classroom
  • comparing your data with data collected by CAP LTER scientists
  • learning about the research of one of our CAP LTER scientists
  • joining the Research Team by contributing data to the CAP LTER database
  • schools that join the Research Team will upload their observations to this web site
