The Environmental Change Biodiversity Network is a multi-agency long-term integrated retìm kiếm programme lớn record, analyse & predict environmental change in the United Kingdom. The focus of the network is to underst& long term air pollution and climate change impacts on biodiversity. All sites operate a unikhung system of long-term data collection of physical, chemical and biological variables recorded using strict protocols.
Since 2009 Natural Englvà (NE) has contributed khổng lồ the wider ECBN through its Long Term Monitoring Network (LTMN), which currently stands at 37 sites across Engl&. Seven monitoring protocols are followed for weather, air quality, land management, vegetation, soil chemistry và communities, bird và butterfly populations, in order lớn allow comparability of 10 target habitats on a range of sites across the network. Below are liên kết lớn protocols và data that have sầu been published as part of this work.
