Forests under stress: Understanding how species interact and adjust to climate change


To unravel the significance of tree adjustments and interactions in a drying and warming world, the next step is to understand the mechanisms of acclimation and species interactions and relate them to global-scale patterns in natural conditions. In this project we will assess the physiological processes by which trees adjust and interact among each other under a changing climate, determine the consequences of these processes on forest responses to climatic stresses and improve our understanding of these effects on forests functioning at a large comprehensive scale. To reach these objectives, a multidisciplinary and multiscale approach using experimental and observational analyses will be employed going from the individual tree to the continental scale.
