Terrestrial mesocosm enclosure at Cereep - Ecotron

Terrestrial mesocosm enclosure at Cereep (experimental and predictive ecology research centre) - Ecotron Ile-de-France, at Foljuif in Seine-et-Marne. These mesocosms are used to study the impact of different parameters such as density, male/female ratio or habitat quality on small animal populations such as the common lizard. Cereep was set up to promote important experimental research and observational programmes focused on the relations between biodiversity and the operation of ecosystems in terrestrial and aquatic environments.
