Land use and climate changes effects on plant and soil C and N dynamics

Soil is the major terrestrial reservoir of C. In spite of its obvious importance, there is a lack of knowledge about how climate change and land-use change interactions affect carbon cycle. The aim of this research line is to contribute to assess the vulnerability of soil carbon stocks in silvopastoral systems, by means of understand … Read more
