Sweden (LTER Sweden)

General Information




LTER-Sweden was founded in June 2010, and adopted by LTER-Europe and ILTER in August 2010. LTER-Sweden is based on a number of established and running instrumented stations for ecological research and monitoring. The stations represent several universities and research organisations. The Swedish network is built on the bottom-up principle, where individual sites form the basis of the network, and a central secretariat coordinates national activities and contacts with the European and International mother LTER organisations. The main objective is to bring Swedish field research stations together to be able to perform research on a larger scale than what is possible at the individual station. LTER Sweden cooperates with SITES which is another national network for selected research stations.
