CESAM researcher, Nelson Abrantes, appointed as national representative of the COST action 'Climate Change Manipulation Experiments in Terrestrial Ecosystems: Networking and Outreach'

Many climate change manipulation experiments have been carried out in recent decades. However, several challenges still exist or have emerged which limit our understanding of ecosystem functioning under future climate change. These include inadequate representation of biomes, artifacts, incomparable experiments, poor representation of relevant scenarios, in particular extreme events, lack of research communication sharing of results and lack of good data for modeling.
This Action will develop a network for the experimental climate change research community brining experimentalists and modelers together in order to provide solutions to these recurrent challenges.
