Ecosystem functions, including primary productivity, are often positively influenced by biodiversity. It is only in the past 25 years that Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functions research has focused on tree communities; as a large part of CO2 sequestration is realized by forests, understanding the relationships between Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functions may be used to increase CO2 sequestration as well as other ecosystem services in a mitigation and adaptation perspective to climate change.
On May 28, 2019, after an introduction by Prof. Alain Paquette (Université du Québec à Montréal – UQAM), CMCC researcher Simone Mereu (IAFES Division) presented the results of Treedivnet network in a webinar organized in the framework of the Festival of Sustainable Development 2019.
