The Ecological Fractal Network

We are biologists interested in understanding how biodiversity and the benefits it provides to people change across space and through time. We’ve grouped together to make a network of sites collecting common data to answer key questions about the world around us. We currently have >25 sites in our network - perhaps you would like to join?

We’re a mix of researchers in different fields (ecology, evolution, statistics, and social science) who love to collaborate. We have a fundamental question our network seeks to address - the extent to which diversity is homogenous across environmental gradients - but we’re open to using the network to ask additional questions.

Maybe you would like to join us? If so, you could download our one-page summary, find out more about our sampling protocol, or fill in our ten-second sign-up form.
