Mediterranean terrestrial ecosystems and increasing drought: vulnerability assessment

Objective

The MIND project will address relevant questions concerning the vulnerability of terrestrial Mediterranean Ecosystems to changes in rainfall. The objectives of the project will be achieved by developing unprecedented large-scale manipulative experiments in four sites in Southern Europe (Italy, France, Spain and Portugal). Innovative tools will be used to assess the flows of carbon, water and energy to and from the terrestrial biosphere across the spectrum of time (two to three years) and space (Northern Mediterranean region). The definition of specific Vulnerability Indices and the preparation of a comprehensive Vulnerability Assessment will be the major deliverables of the project. Accordingly, the MIND project will become an unprecedented collaborative, multinational and interdisciplinary effort dealing with Mediterranean ecosystems, in the area of Global Change Research.
