Forest Ecosystems and Ecological Risks

 

The section Forest Ecosystems and Ecological Risks investigates the long-term effects of natural and anthropogenic stresses on forests and the resulting risks for humans. By analysing data from a network of selected study sites, we monitor the long-term response of forest ecosystems to the most relevant stress factors. Our particular emphasis is on atmospheric deposition, the biogeochemical cycle, the climate, the soil, the ground vegetation and trees.

The section Forest Ecosystems and Ecological Risks is responsible for the Swiss contribution to the International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests (ICP Forests).

ICP Level I, European Crown Condition Survey

ICP Level II, European Programme for the Intensive Monitoring of Forest Ecosystems
