Relationshipof carbon and water fluxes at ecosystem scale with the main environmental andphysiological parameters. Life cycle assessment of agro-ecosystems.
Characterization of Carbon stocks and fluxes in an orchard planting by using an eddy covariance tower and a soil respiration system (Li-8100 plusLi-8150 8 chambers multiplexer) with trenched and control plots, combined withbiometric measurements of aboveground tree-organs growth and mini-rhizotrons toassess root production and turnover (below ground C allocation).
