Global Observation Research Initiative in Alpine Environments
The strength of GLORIA is its simple approach which is to enable the establishment of a large number of sites within and across continents. The establishment and long-term maintenance of such a large-scale multi-site network requires a world-wide community of committed ecologists. It wholly depends on researchers who are willing to establish the foundations of a long-term programme which will yield results for future generations. The development of GLORIA is an ongoing process and individuals and institutions with an interest in ecological research in alpine environments are welcome to contribute (see the guidelines for establishing new target regions).
GLORIA site managers are responsible for the establishment and maintenance of sites (using the standardised GLORIA protocols). See the active GLORIA target regions and contact persons and a list of potential future contributors.
