Research activities

Long-term follow-up studies form the core of the research activities at the station. Kilpisjärvi Biological Station co-operates with many national and international research projects (Scannet, Lapbiat2, INTERACT) and other biological stations.

In 2007, Finland's environmental administration approved Kilpisjärvi Biological Station as a member of LTER (Long-tern Ecological Network) and LTSER (Long-term Socio-Ecological Network). Biological Station also succeeded in the international research evaluation of the University of Helsinki. The station publishes its own newsletter, "Kilpisjärvi Notes".
