  Name: South African Environmental Observation Network
  Abbreviation: SAEON
  Description: SAEON is a network organisation that have established six spatially distributed nodes (environmental observatories, field stations with sites) linked by an information management network to serve as research and education platforms for long-term studies of ecosystems that will provide for incremental advances in our understanding of ecosystems and our ability to detect, predict and react to environmental change. The core research programme strives to distinguish between anthropogenic and natural change as well as to unravel the relations between social change and ecosystem change. SAEON ensures that Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) data is archived and accessible as an asset for generations to come.
