The German network for long term ecological research LTER-D is as a platform for communication, documentation and collaboration of scientists in long-term, system-oriented and interdisciplinary environmental research in Germany. AT the moment it covers 17 sites and platforms performing long-term ecological research in all relevant ecosystem types from the high mountains to the Wadden Sea. The German LTER was founded in 2004 and is in a consolidating phase. The further development of LTER is closely tuned with recommendations of and cooperation with LTER-Europe in order to make both networks powerful.
