To test the infrastructure we conducted a modularized experiment along the latitudinal gradient offered by the five lakes included in SITES AquaNet. More specifically, we manipulated a press disturbance (light reduction) and a pulse disturbance (temporary presence of fish in the mesocosms). With this we could demonstrate the suitability of the infrastructure and autonomous sensor system to host modularized experiments and provide a good example of the power and advantages of such experiments.
