Short scientific visit

Ms. Mejda Abbasi holds a PhD in Agricultural Sciences and works at INRGREF MAbbasi_114x160.jpg : 3.857421875Kb(Tunisia). With the occasion of Antalya's scientific seminar, she presented her team's work on "Physiological and ultrastructural responses to long-term salt stress of three Populus alba L. clones".

During her stay, Ms. Abbasi gained experience on Eddy covariance measurements of water, energy and carbon fluxes in forests, remote sensing techniques for climate change effects research (MODIS), optical sensors of plant fluorescence and reflectance (spectroscopic methods) and the CASTANEA ecopysiological model.

Such visit focusing in understanding the physiological responses of tree species to climate change and its integration in forest management will allow to develop strategies that support the adaptation of forest ecosystems to the changing conditions.

EFIMED Short Scientific Visits promote exchanges of experience and facilitate knowledge transfer among Mediterranean forest scientists.
