The major research theme of the EECRG is to study ecological and environmental change over a range of temporal and spatial scales. It attempts to set contemporary ecological and environmental patterns and processes in the context of longer time-scale variability. Its primary goal is 'to reconstruct the past, study the present, and model the future' and to study, quantify, and understand the natural variability of ecosystems and the multi-layered impact of human activity on ecosystems. There are strong quantitative and qualitative components, close interactions between modern ecological research, cultural landscape ecology, palaeoecology and palaeoclimatology, and predictive modelling and spatial approaches, and major links between 'pure' and 'applied' science and societal and nature conservation concerns.
