Workpackage 3 - Environmental services

Evaluate effects of changing climate on main environmental services provided by forest ecosystems (carbon sequestration, biodiversity conservation, water regulation, soil protection).

Exchange of research staff will strengthen and improve estimation of the key environmental services provided by forests such as carbon sequestration, water supply, soil protection, and biodiversity conservation and the risk of their disruption under climate change. The exchanges will drive forward the development and use of a) forest ecosystem modelling which is critical to predicting future forest function and key environmental services such as water yield, b) carbon inventory estimation, which is key to mitigation efforts and c) model of forest species assemblages which is critical to predict species loss or invasion under climate changes. In particular, the collaboration between the partner countries will add important synergies and benefits because of the different partners' experience in working in climates and with tree species for which there is no 'local' experience, but that may well occur in the future (i.e. the concept of

Description of work

The exchanges in this WP will drive forward the development and use of a) forest ecosystem modelling which is critical to predicting future forest function and key environmental services such as water yield and soil fertility, b) carbon inventory estimation, which is key to mitigation efforts and c) model of forest species assemblages which is critical to predict species loss or invasion under climate changes. Work will include assessment of effects of changing climates on four key environmental services and activities including staff exchange, joint research and networking will be organised accordingly in four main tasks:
  1. carbon sequestration

  2. water regulation

  3. soil protection

  4. biodiversity conservation
