Climate warming and global change (socioeconomic, political, demographic, cultural change) are the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Processes behind these changes need to be analysed. Their possible impact must be known to develop strategies for adaptation or even for mitigation. All natural and socioeconomic processes impair ecosystems and ecosystem function. Ecosystems in turn supply ecosystem services for economy and social welfare. The survival of future generations strongly depends on the integrity of the ecosystems (sustainability). Analyses of trends and driving forces require long term research. Thus, ecological long term research is a prerequisite for sustainable development.
