LAMPS Presentation Transcript

  • 1. LAMPS FacilityLong-term Australian Multiscale Plot System
    Presentation by Prof. Andy Lowe
  • 2. Purpose of Multiscale plot network
    A sustainable set of long term data collection procedures and archives from plots, sites and transects across all Australian ecosystems measuring selected flora, fauna and biophysical processes, suitable for key ecosystem science questions and for developing and testing ecosystem models.
    Contribute critical information for managing landscapes for biodiversity, soils, carbon and water, at local to regional scales. Quantifying continental scale climate-ecosystem interactions and feedbacks, and biome impacts:
    Stocks of biodiversity and relation to abiotic and climatic variables - AusPlots
    Key ecosystem drivers, particularly disturbance and climate - LTERN
    Flows of nutrients and systems interaction/interdependency - SuperSites
  • 3. Approach of Multiscale plot network
    Build on past at a range of different spatial and temporal scales
    Map what long-term ecological work has been completed where
    Integrate results and datasets from fine-scale local-regional question-driven long-term research with State and national-level mandated monitoring
    Activities should be clearly linkable to management activities and outcomes
    Information, both pre-existing and new should be openly accessible
