HITE - Human Impacts on Terrestrial Ecosystems


The HITE working group studied paleorecords and other ecological archives under PAGES Focus 4, in order to document and understand the interactions between human activities and terrestrial ecosystems through time, with the goal of improving the scientific basis of procedures that ensure the security and services of terrestrial ecosystems for the future.

From 2012-13 onwards the activites of the HITE Working Group were merged into the Focus 4 themes: Land Use and Cover, Regional Integration, Soil and Sediment, Water, and Biodiversity.

Leaders: John Dearing  & Marie-José Gaillard-Lemdahl
