There is an increasing global pressure on ecosystems, not only from climate change and changes in global nutrient cycles, but also from growing demands of the society for their services. In particular, the greatly increasing demands for provisioning of food, fiber, bioenergy, and climate mitigation will challenge the functioning of ecosystems globally.
The European research infrastructure AnaEE (Analysis and Experimentation on Ecosystems) addresses the grand challenge of ensuring sustainable and optimal usage of ecosystem services in a changing world through coordinated research using state-of-the-art experimental research platforms across natural gradients of climate in Europe.
AnaEE Denmark is the national Danish node of AnaEE and provides access for public and private sector researchers to nine Danish ecosystem-level experimental research facilities in agriculture, forests, heath- and grasslands as well as in streams/lakes.
AnaEE Denmark is a consortium consisting of six departments from University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, Roskilde University and Technical University of Denmark.
