GLoBE is an international network of freshwater ecologists, which main aim is to explore ecological patterns and processes in stream ecosystems at the global scale.
Originally designed to specifically study one key stream ecosystem process, leaf litter breakdown (hence its name, which stands for 'Global Lotic Breakdown Experiments'), it has now expanded in order to consider a wide variety of ecological issues that are globally relevant.
The network currently counts with collaborators from approximately 50 research teams from >30 countries across 6 continents, which are listed below.
You can find information about past and present projects here. If you are interested in joining the network for future studies, please send us a message explaining the reasons for your interest, your location, and characteristics of your research team/laboratory.
