WATER REGULATION

The climate change models currently predicted in the Mediterranean context forecast a change in the precipitation system, reducing the annual quantity of rain and affecting the distribution of rainfall throughout the year. Accordingly, the expected greater scarcity of water and increase in temperatures will result in droughts, meaning that plants will need a larger quantity of water to survive (evapotranspiration) and if this water is scarce or completely lacking, there will be a loss in growth and the very structure of the forests will change.

The CLIMARK project will study how plants use water to grow and therefore store carbon in a range of different forest formations within the Mediterranean context using different forest management models and processes. This will determine which species and forest structures are the most efficient in terms of water use.
