Long-Term Ecosystem Research in Europe

LTER Poland

The Polish LTER network was established as a formal member of the International LTER network (ILTER) in 1998, as a result of a bilateral agreement between the President of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the then Chair of ILTER. Polish LTER is coordinated by the European Regional Centre for Ecohydrology u/a UNESCO, International Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The first network comprised these sites: Masurian Lakeland, Bialowieza Forest, Zegrzynski Dam Reservoir, Kampinoski National Park, Bieszczady Montains and Tatra Mountains. Since then, more sites have been added (see 'mind map' diagram below).

The most recent national network profile (mindmap, biomes, site categories, site number development) is available as PDF here.
