ProjectThe International Diversity Experiment Network with Trees (IDENT)
The International Diversity Experiment Network with Trees (IDENT) is a network of Biodiversity - Ecosystem Functioning (BEF) experiments in North America and Europe. The main characteristics of IDENT within TreeDivNet are the focus on the early years of tree development, the role of functional diversity, and BEF relationships over stress gradients. The experiment consists of seven sites: six in temperate ecoregions, one in a Mediterranean region. In total, 1640 plots have been planted with native as well as exotic tree species. At three of the sites, the impacts of water availability and nutrient addition are studied as well.
