 The Inner Mongolia Grassland Ecosystem Research Station (IMGERS) of the CAS, which is located in the Xilin River Basin, Inner Mongolia (43°26′N116°04′E, 1100 m a.s.l.), was established in 1979. It became one of the key stations of the CERN in 1992 and one of the national field stations in 2005. IMGERS focuses on (1) long-term monitoring of the key biotic and abiotic factors driving the typical steppe ecosystem processes, (2) studies of the structure and function of the ecosystems, biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, and ecosystem responses and feedback to global change, and (3) development of practical techniques and methods for grassland ecosystem management, especially for sustainable resource utilization, grassland restoration, and artificial pasture planting.
