SHIFTFEEDBACK Ecosystem response to drought : unravelling the unexplored role of plant-soil feedback

Ecosystem Drought Plant-Soil

Titre : SHIFTFEEDBACK Ecosystem response to drought : unravelling the unexplored role of plant-soil feedback

Région : Global

Code du projet : 851678

Durée : Start date 1 January 2020 — End date 31 December 2024

Descriptif
Rising temperatures increase rates of evapotranspiration. The intensity and duration of climate extremes such as drought have long-term negative impacts on Earth’s plant communities. Vegetation responses to drought varies and is linked to species diversity. The EU-funded SHIFTFEEDBACK project will investigate how changes in plant-soil feedback underlie strong shifts in plant community composition following drought. The project will also quantify the effects of plant-plant and plant-microbial interactions on plant growth and subsequent shifts in plant community composition in response to drought. Ultimately, general patterns in plant-soil feedback (a process where plants alter the biotic and abiotic qualities of soil they grow in, which then alters the ability of plants to grow in that soil in the future), will be identified across European drought experiments.
