Description of Network
The Spanish LTER network was included in ILTER in 2008. Currently our network contains 9 LTER platform, 2 LTSER platforms and a network of forest monitoring plots (ICP-Forest). Six of them are also National Parks (IUCN Category II). The relationship between long term monitoring and protected areas is one of the most relevant ideas behind the Spanish LTER network: our aim is to create long term datasets to understand the structure/functioning of ecosystems as well as to deliver knowledge to aid environmental decision making.
