Ecosystems change on a multitude of spatial and temporal scales. While analyses of ecosystem dynamics in short timespans have received much attention, the impacts of changes in the long term have, to a great extent, been neglected, provoking a lack of information and methodological know-how in this area.

This book fills this gap by focusing on studies dealing with the investigation of complex, long-term ecological processes with regard to global change, the development of early warning systems, and the acquisition of a scientific basis for strategic conservation management and the sustainable use of ecosystems.

Within this book, theoretical ecological questions of long-term processes, as well as an international dimension of long-term monitoring, observations and research are brought together. The outcome is an overview on different aspects of long-term ecological research. Aquatic, as well as terrestrial ecosystems are represented.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Each of the 30 chapters (written by 104 authors) deals with the conceptual issue of long-term research ... . The book can serve as a source of arguments and ideas for grant proposals of those who are preparing any monitoring, as even short-term monitoring might be repeated in future and become long-term. The book is an excellent source of flow charts incorporating different scales, ecosystems subjects methods, etc ... ." (Jitka Klimesova, Folia Geobot, Vol. 47, 2012)
