Long-term Forest Ecosystem Research Programme LWF
Swiss forests are exposed to changing environmental conditions. The consequences of air pollution and climate change on the forest are important questions which the Long-term Forest Ecosystem Research Programme LWF seeks to answer. Within a legally set framework of the LWF programme, Switzerland partakes in international research programmes such as The International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests ICP-Forests or the Long-Term Ecosystem Research LTER-Europe.
