Long Term Ecological Monitoring (LTER) in Wadi Shita

As part of the international LTER network, we have established a research site that examines geo-hydro-ecology interactions in Wadi Shita, in the center of the Arava. We are looking at the effect of the geomorphology and topography on the hydrology of the wadi and as a consequence on its ecology. Specifically we are examining acacia health and biodiversity of butterflies, beetles, scorpions and soil fauna.
