Research Centre for Ecological Change
Coordinated Analysis of Long-Term Ecological Data to Understand Impacts of Global Change
In Finland, we have a unique knowledge reserve made up of long-term series of nature observations. By fully utilising this reserve, we can understand environmental change and its impact on communities of organisms and the ecosystem services they provide. In this project, we will unite the leading experts in the field to tap into this reserve together with its creators, to develop new methods and to disseminate the tools created to stakeholders.
