The National Ecological Observatory Network(NEON)


The mission of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is to enable understanding and forecasting of the impacts of climate change, land use change and invasive species on continental-scale ecology – by providing infrastructure and consistent methodologies to support research and education in these areas.

NEON is part of a bold effort to:

  • Understand and forecast continental-scale environmental change

  • Inform natural resource decisions

  • Engage the next generation of scientists
