Ecosystem Themes

Hub for ecosystem science in Sweden

SITES focuses on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and recognizes the connectivity of elements within landscapes and between regions. Terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems are tightly interlinked and their changing features interactively influence the atmosphere. Biological communities interact with these physical environments, which drive biogeochemical and ecological processes. Thus, SITES focuses on four Ecosystem Themes (including the connectivity between them): Aquatic, Terrestrial, Atmospheric, and Biological.
