Long-term monitoring and follow-up studies, Kilpisjärvi Biological Station, Finland

The most long-lasting series of observations concerns the fluctuations of the small rodent densities over a 50-year period. Furthermore, the population dynamics of passerines have been monitored since 1957. Long-term research projects also include the periodicity in the quality and quantity of vegetation in the mountain region. Recent research activities have extended from animal and botanical ecology into hydrobiological and paleolimnological geography and geophysics has been conducted at the station. Seismic station of the Institute of Seismology is situated at the station.
