Résumé
The EXTREME project will be analysing and comparing the sensitivity of ecosystem functioning in desert shrubs or steppes and managed boreal forest ecosystems to the foreseen climate change, climatic variability and weather extremes, with implications for carbon sequestration and biomass production of ecosystems. The project will carry out both experimental and model-based analyses at various temporal and spatial scales. The project is expected to generate new knowledge of how carbon sequestration and biomass production of the most sensitive ecosystems response to climate change scenarios.

Présentation
The EXTREME research project analyzes and compares the susceptibility of coal and biomass production to the semi-arid shrub / aro ecosystem and the boreal forest ecosystem to climate change, climate change and the occurrence of extreme weather events. The research is based on both the analysis of experimental data and model calculations in different time spans. The project brings new information on how the carbon sequestration and biomass production of these most global ecosystems on these global scale react to changing conditions. Such knowledge and know-how are vital in reducing the adverse impacts of climate change on such sensitive ecosystems and in adapting to climate change.
