The Czech LTER network of 7 sites was proposed and organized by the Czech National MAB Committee. It includes 6 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves and one aquatic man-made site, a reservoir in the upper Vltava River watershed. All selected sites have a long history of research. Ecological research (as well as nature protection) in the Czech Republic has a long tradition. Long-term data on biotic and abiotic parameters were gathered by research institutions and universities in specific topics and projects (intensely during the International Biological Programme in seventies of the past century). Governmental and regional organizations perform regular monitoring, for national environmental protection and for the implementation of international conventions.
The most recent national network profile (mindmap, biomes, site categories, site number development) is available as PDF here.
