Climate change and air pollution are likely to cause substantial changes in ecosystems.  It is important that these changes are monitored, so that policy and management techniques can be developed to minimise adverse impacts on biodiversity on the basis of reliable scientific evidence.  Plans for a new UK research programme and network of sites to address this issue were developed in a project led by the NERC Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and are described in this report.  The Environmental Change Biodiversity Network (ECBN) will be linked to the existing Environmental Change Network, substantially increasing its spatial coverage across the UK.
