Site Based Monitoring Business Development Plan - WC0703

Description
The programme of site based monitoring aims to understand effects of climate change and atmospheric pollution on biodiversity and to provide evidence in support of decision and policy making to mitigate adverse impacts. It involves measurement of aspects of climate and pollution with assessment of biodiversity, such sensitive species, across a network of sites that offer discrimination of effects, and link into the Environment Change Network. The dataset may enable analysis of causal relationships.
