DescriptioneLTER (Long-Term Ecological Research network) brings together the European research sites on long-term socio-ecological processes into a coordinated research infrastructure. These ecosystem research sites/platforms support, enhance and promote the inter-disciplinary investigation of long-term biodiversity and ecosystem processes at varying spatial and temporal scales. The long-term perspective helps to determine the impacts of drivers and pressures of environmental change and to investigate ecosystem processes and their response to environmental pressures. eLTER provides long-term research sites for multiple use as well as manages the data and offers virtual access to the eLTER data legacy. It also secures highest quality interoperable services in close interaction with related European and global research infrastructures.
Components of the research infrastructurePhysical access (to research sites)
Remote access to facilities (virtual access to data)
