Welcome to the website of the long-term socio-ecological research site
Matschertal/Val di Mazia!

In 2014 the Matschertal /Val di Mazia has been accepted as a research site of the long-term ecological research (LTER) network. Over the past decade, a number of studies and measuring campaigns have been conducted in this valley, located in the heart of the Alps of northern Italy. Continuous monitoring and recording of biotic and abiotic parameters allow scientists to observe climate and land-use changes over a long-term period.


Tenth anniversary!

A decade has passed since the first surveys in Val di Mazia and we are pleased to present impressions and results in an interesting brochure (only in German and Italian)!                

iNaturalists wanted!

The citizen science project iNaturalist is finally connected with our LTSER site Matsch|Mazia! We invite you to record your observations of plants and animals and to share them with the community! Species will be determined and discussed together!
