This booklet provides the foremost findings of a 12-year ecological learn of the Bornhöved Lake District, located a few 30 km south of Kiel. traditionally talking, the current learn scheme, like related long term atmosphere experiences at Göttingen, Bayreuth, München, and Berchtesgaden, has been conceived because the middle of a complete ecological surveillance process for Germany (Ellenberg et al. 1978). Comprising 3 interrelated parts, specifically an ecological tracking community, comparative environment study, and an environmental specimen financial institution, the program is meant to advertise either ecological technological know-how and making plans and coverage. during this connection the geo- and bioscientifically dependent environment examine goals at figuring out the constitution and capabilities of platforms, the typical equilibrium and pressure tolerance of singular parts and the whole process opposed to alterations and disturbances from inside and from outdoor, and the relationships among variety, productiveness, and balance. therefore, atmosphere examine types the essential foundation for the rational research of the great information units made to be had by means of ecological tracking networks and for the sufficient collection of plant, animal, and soil specimens for environmental specimen banking purposes.
