Overview

Research infrastructure comprises the "hard" infrastructure, such as the networks of diverse sensors, the long-term monitoring plots and national sample archives; and the "soft" infrastructure, such as the standardisation of data collection, handling, meta-data, licensing and storage methods and tools. These research infrastructures are needed to recognize negative developments in our terrestrial ecosystems and initiate timely countermeasures or mitigate the negative impacts on society through long-term observations. This book brings together major knowledge on experimental infrastructures in ecosystem science for testing and predicting future environmental conditions, designing new approaches, identifying priorities and providing solutions to close current gaps in environmental monitoring.
