Long-Term Ecosystem Research in Europe

Hungarian LTER Network


 The Hungarian LTER Network consists of scientists working on the LTER sites collectively engaged in and dedicated to multi- and interdisciplinary long-term and large spatial scale research and monitoring in ecological science including human dimensions.
In 1997 the Hungarian Academy of Sciences after longer negotiations confirmed the development of a national ecological research network to increase the effectiveness of the research work. Site-based long-term ecological monitoring and research has central role in the scientific programme of the network. In Hungary there are three research sites which are representative for the zonal biomes of the country, and have proper scientific background from earlier research activity. Their scientists want to fulfill the requirements of the standards of LTER sites and to take part in regional and global networking activities. Its scientific basis is formed by different research institutes of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and from departments of different universities. More ...
