Main Research Areas

Ecologically friendly management of tree crops. Tree physiology and ecosystem studies related to carbon cycle, nitrogen cycle, water fluxes, mineral nutrition, roots, rhizodeposition.
we use a number of different techniques in our studies including micrometeorological approach and stable isotopes.
