Just back from a terrific launch of the North Wyke farm platform. The approach taken in Devon is to instrument the entire grassland farm in 3 contrasting long term experimental systems - the ultimate systems biology of the landscape. Really impressed with the way the have done this - akin to the approach adopted in the UK DTC projects and complimentary to the EVO pilot framework. Well done North Wyke - live long and prosper (and jolly good cake art too!). If you click on the picture you will get a link to more pictures taken on the day.
