A new paper led by Adrià Barbeta is currently under review in Hydrology and Earth System Sciences discussion. In this paper, we investigated plant-water sources of an emblematic refugial population of Fagus sylvatica in the Ciron river gorges in South-Western France using stable isotopes.
The EcoFun team invests Bordeaux Science Agro’s glasshouse this spring for an experiment investigating isotopic fractionation factors during root water uptake by Fagus sylvatica saplings. We took advantage of Julia Cook’s visit to show her the experiment and take a
This year the EcoFun team is hosting five MSc students on a range of interesting topics: Ludovic Lacombe (MSc 2), Université de Bordeaux: The influence of A. petiolata and other brassicas on COS emission from soils Muriel Batide (MSc 2), Université
As part of our continued collaboration with Alexis Achim and Laval University, Quebec ECOFUN hosted a visit from Joelle Berthier. Joelle spent her time here learning about stable isotope variations in ecosystems and was trained in the preparation and extraction
Adria Barbeta Margarit joins the ECOFUN team after completing his PhD at CREAF in Barcelona. He will now be looking at the water use of a refugia population of Beech trees growing along the banks of the Ciron river. Adria
