A few years ago, I was writing an application to come and join the EcoFun team in the middle of a gas-exchange measurement campaign. The trees had flushed right before we started the campaign and on the first day of
Great ECOFUN momento from this years COSANOVA splinter meeting at the EGU conference in Vienna. There were many interesting talks on COS during the conference and a lively discussion at the splinter meeting. As you can see we all left
Last week we had the opportunity to host a science discovery stage for three high school teachers. Our guests came from three local institutions: Lycée des Métiers de la Mer (Gujan-Mestras), Lycée Polyvalent Victor Louis (Talance) and Lycée General et
In the past few years, carbonyl sulphide (COS or OCS) has emerged as a new promising trace gas to estimate gross primary productivity (GPP, that is how much carbon plants can remove from the atmosphere, check this if you want
The EcoFun team will be well represented at the next EGU meeting held in Vienna, Austria (17-22 April 2016), with a total of six presentations, one organised session and a splinter meeting. Check out the schedule! SMP31 COSANOVA network meeting
BG1.5/AS4.7 Terrestrial ecosystem responses to global change: integrating carbon, nutrient and water cycles in experiments and models (co-organized) Conveners: Teresa Gimeno , Maarten Braakhekke Co-Conveners: Jean-Christophe Domec , John E Drake , Karin Rebel Orals / Tue, 19 Apr, 10:30–12:00 / Room 2.83 Posters
Noelia defended her thesis “Effects of ontogeny and water stress on stomatal regulation on different plant functional types”. Her findings highlight that carbon uptake per unit of water spent is lower on younger leaves on evergreen species with “expensive” long-lived
Noelia Saavedra has just arrived in our group to do a MSc internship with Teresa and Lisa. She will be studying the “effects of ontogeny and water stress on stomatal regulation on different plant functional types” typical of the Aquitaine region. Welcome!
Three EcoFun members have participated in a study reviewing optimal stomatal behaviour across the globe. The study, now published in Nature Climate Change, shows how variable plants are in terms of water use efficiency. See figure below and here for more details. Estimated
Teresa Gimeno has just arrived in our group as a Idex postdoctoral fellow. She will be studying nocturnal water losses of different life forms using a multi- tracer approach. Welcome!
