Onderzoeksfaciliteiten

In Nederland zijn veel belangrijke grootschalige onderzoeksfaciliteiten voor ecologisch onderzoek: van experimentele mini-meren tot onderzoeksboten, en van living labs tot collecties.  

  1. Avian blood sample collection

    Faciliteit
    NIOO-KNAW
    Since 1994, we collect genetic samples from insects (winter moth) and birds (mainly great tit, blue tit, pied flycatcher, oystercatcher and various waterfowl). The location and specifications of a sample can be found in our relational data warehouse. There are more than 170,000 blood samples, feathers and other tissues stored at NIOO. The samples can be used to investigate the genotype of an individual or population in relation to their fenotype.

  2. Bacterial collection

    Faciliteit
    NIOO-KNAW
    NIOO has a collection of thousands of bacterial strains isolated from different (semi-)natural and agricultural environments. Most are bacteria isolated from soils, rhizosphere or plant parts, but aquatic strains are present as well.

  3. Veluwe grassland plant collection

    Faciliteit
    Dry sandy areas
    NIOO-KNAW
    This is a systematic collection of eight plant species from five grassland sites in the Veluwe, for which some tissue from individual plants is stored at -80 °C. For each site, up to 10 individuals from each species have been sampled along a transect at two time points (late May and early August).
