Swedish Infrastructure for Ecosystem Science (SITES)
Swedish Infrastructure for Ecosystem Science, SITES, is a nationally co-ordinated infrastructure for terrestrial and limnological field research.
SITES extends throughout Sweden with different ecosystems and climatic zones, from agriculture lands, forest, cultivated forest to mires, streams, lakes and alpines with the nine participating field research stations as physical nodes.
SITES offers all scientists to use participating field research stations.
Either you can be on site yourself or outsource an assignment to the technical staff at the station. You also have the opportunity to use existing data collected at the stations. There are, in a number of areas of research, extensive and long series of data.
Skogaryd, Erken, Tarfala and Abisko along with the five stations from SLU
Svartberget, Röbäcksdalen, Grimsö, Asa and Lönnstorp are SITES. SLU host the coordination office and develop SITES together with the other participating universities; Stockholm, Uppsala, Gothenburg and the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat.
