The Metatron: Experimental Ecology Gets Connected
19 July 2012 1:57 pm
Nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees in France, an unusual new ecological laboratory called the Metatron is set to provide insights into how animals disperse across landscapes—a sometimes mysterious process that can be crucial to conservation. Composed of dozens of large, interconnected white tents laid out across a 4-hectare field, the sensor-rich facility will enable researchers to explore how factors such as light, temperature, and rainfall influence animal movements.
