General information and objectivesALPNET is a new European Science Foundation network on Alpine Biodiversity. ‘Alpine’, for the purposes of ALPNET, has been defined as the region above the climatic treeline and for pragmatic reasons is focused on terrestrial ecosystems, though the link to freshwater systems is recognised. The network covers all of Europe and has the aims of:
synthesising existing data fostering collaborative research providing communication.
This is to be a scientifically active network focused on large scale comparative ecology. The network is open to anyone active in any aspect of alpine ecology.
