ESA's Historical Records Committee promotes the preservation and use of history and historical records in ecology. We have invited a group of historians, archivists, museum researchers and ecologists to help us expand our efforts at this critical time in human history. The poster session presents specific applications and case studies using long term data sets, field notes, historical photographs, explorations of digitized literature and other approaches to current ecological and environmental challenges. The session is linked to Organized Oral Sessions 11693: The Importance of History and Historical Records as Ecologists Confront the Anthropocene.
