The Ecological Continuity Trust currently supports 26 active experiments at 19 sites in the United Kingdom and our community is constantly growing. There are 38 additional Post-treatment Recovery Experiments (PTREs) where treatments have ceased and the site is accessible for research. A list of all sites on the ECT register can be downloaded here.
Our sites are covering different habitat types ranging from bog, coastal, grassland, heath, meadow, montane, to woodland ecosystems.
The map is showing the locations of the 26 active long-term experiments at 19 sites in the UK.
There are a further 38 Post-treatment Recovery Experiments, where treatments have ceased and the site is accessible for research.
Conducting research at our sites
As the management and treatment history for long-term experiments are maintained and well documented, they provide excellent opportunities for research. This could build on research previously undertaken at the site, or could investigate an entirely new hypothesis.
If you are interested in conducting research at any of the sites (active or post-treatment), use the contact details listed on each site page, or contact us directly and we can put you in touch with the relevant principal investigator.
