Precipitation pattern effects on plant-soil microbial interactions
FP7 Project with U.S. partner
Short name and number
Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, Biotechnology
Global environmental change is predicted in Europe to result in increased frequency and intensity of extreme climatic events, including severe droughts and intense precipitation events. Such changes will affect plant physiology, microbial activity and soil nutrient cycling, inducing changes in ecosystem functioning, with expected consequences on in plant community composition, net primary productivity and carbon balance.
