04 June 2024

SITES Skogaryd Research Catchment is connected to the strategic research area Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in a Changing Climate (BECC), which brings together scientists from Lund University and University of Gothenburg to perform research essential to the sustainable management of ecosystems and biodiversity. Skogaryd Research Catchment offers BECC researchers access to field studies on a variety of ecosystems, i.e. mires, mature and young forests, lakes and streams.

The SITES 2024 Calendar theme is “SITES Collaborations”. SITES aims to promote excellent ecosystem research and high-quality data that support this research. This includes collaborations that increase the number of projects that utilize multiple SITES stations and connect between aquatic and terrestrial processes. Further, SITES aims to strengthen the collaborations with relevant research infrastructures and networks across Sweden and internationally, including data infrastructures and services. Each month during 2024, follow along as we highlight a unique SITES collaboration.
