TERN Supersites

"The Australian Supersite Network (ASN) is a key facility of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network. It seeks to understand how Australian ecosystems will respond to future environmental change by setting up a nationally consistent network of multidisciplinary and intensive ecosystem observatories.

The ASN sites (Supersites) are representative of Australian ecosystems or span key environmental gradients. The ASN collects detailed data sets on flora, fauna and biophysical processes from each supersite. The data can then be used to scale-up from supersite measurements to spatial data sets and ecosystem models of regional- to continental-scale."
