• In progress
  • eLTER's 'Market Place'

    … shall serve as hub for eLTER's research community looking for data or sites and platforms to contribute to specific projects to support pan-European or habitat-specific research and Site and Platform Coordinators, who have data and sites and platforms to offer.

    What is the aim of the 'Market Place'?

    It is clearly intended to optimise the connection/transparency between data providers (site and platform coordinators) and the research community looking for long-term or habitat-specific data. Ultimately, the Market Place is intended to bridge the gap between the two user groups and boost your research collaborations!

    How does the ‘Market Place’ help?

    With the development of eLTER's service portfolio, the 'Market Place' has been introduced as a service to act as a hub where researchers can publish their requests as data calls and for project contributions in a harmonised way and reach several hundreds of eLTER sites and platforms directly without much effort. Likewise, site and platform coordinators can see the list of data calls and possibilities for project contributions, along with requested data and addressed habitats and directly identify those data calls in which they can participate.

    Agroecology Partnership

    (website / contact)

    Fostering Agroecology at farm and landscape levels

    Vegetated man-made habitats (agricultural, horticultural, domestic)

    It is expected that proposals provide a clear added value to at least one of the general objectives and corresponding core themes of the AGROECOLOGY partnership under which framework this co-funded call is being conducted. It is strongly recommended that applicants consider the strategic research and innovation agenda (SRIA)7 underpinning AGROECOLOGY when developing the project idea.

    Pollinators in gardens and agricultural areas

    Vegetated man-made habitats (agricultural, horticultural, domestic)

    Biodiversity Genomics Europe (BGE) is looking for partners to engage in an exciting pan-European project on pollinators in gardens and agricultural areas. It involves setting a pair of Malaise traps, one in an agricultural field and another in a nearby large garden, during five consecutive weeks in spring/summer 2024.

    The procedure is repeated throughout the sampling season in at least three areas. We will provide Malaise traps! Details available in our Pollinator Communities sampling SOP.

    Grasslands and lands dominated by forbs, mosses or lichens

    Required

    1. Plant functional type (grasses, small herbs, tall herbs, legumes) composition e.g. in % based on biomass, plant numbers, or cover etc.

    Additional if available

    1. Additional grassland observations (time-series with exact dates of measurements) of aboveground biomass yield, vegetation height, etc.

    2. Additional site information: daily weather variables, explicit management information, soil attributes and/or variables or

    Characterization
    of the water status with the Budyko framework

    all

    Required

    1. Site information:
      latitude, longitude, elevation (in respect to sea level [m]), land cover

    2. Meteorological data:
      yearly Precipitation in mm (accumulated based on gap-free data); yearly Potential Evapotranspiration (PET) in mm (accumulated based on gap-free data) derived from Penman Monteith; yearly Actual Evapotranspiration in mm (accumulated based on gap-free data) measured at the site (e.g., Eddy Covariance, Bowen ratio method or lysimeters)

    Maximum daily air temperature at 2 m height [°C],
    Tmin = Minimum daily air temperature at 2 m height [°C],
    Tmean = Minimum daily air temperature at 2 m height [°C],
    Pressure = average atmospheric pressure [kPa] (If atmospheric pressure is missing, we will make predictions based on elevation.)
    alpha = albedo or canopy reflection coefficient [dimensionless],
    Rs = The incoming solar radiation [MJ m-2 day-1]. (If it is missing, we will predict it based on Tmax and Tmin and extraterrestrial radiation (Ra). The latter itself will be predicted based on the solar constant (Gsc = 0.0820), Latitude [rad], day of
    year, and number of days in the year.)

    Uz = wind speed [m/s] measured at mH metre height
    mH = measurement height of wind speed
    RHmax = maximum relative humidity (%)
    RHmin = minimum relative humidity (%)
    RHmean = Mean relative humidity (%)
    If all or part of the humidity data is missing or the quality is poor, we will make predictions based on
    the temperature data.

    If the annual AET and P values are also not calculated due to data gaps, please provide us with the daily
    data of AET and P so that we can fill in the gaps and then make our own annual calculations.
