AnaEE-France offers the opportunity to study aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems in semi-controlled environments. Four experimental platforms are thus made available to scientists for studies in artificial environments or in situ under controlled conditions:
- PLANAQUA platform, for the study of aquatic ecosystems in mesocosms and macrocosms as well as in scientific animal research;
- PEARL platform, for the study of aquatic ecosystems in mesocosms and the production of organisms;
- the LAkes Observatory (OLA) for in situ studies on the lakes or on the ground in laboratories and fish farming basins;
- The Metatron, for studies on terrestrial ecosystems using a large-scale system allowing the observation of population movements according to the climatic conditions which are controlled in the various compartments.
