Experimental platforms

With the help of the experimental platforms, the impact of land use and climate on ecological processes in terrestrial and aquatic systems is studied under controlled conditions at the UFZ. The platforms allow e.g. the simulation of future environmental conditions by manipulating temperature and/or precipitation regimes. From the results, e.g. future scenarios can be developed and modeled.
