Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche - Istituto per la Protezione Sostenibile delle Piante

The Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche - Istituto per la Protezione Sostenibile delle Piante (CNR-IPSP) will contibute their experience in plant responses to abiotic stress factors, with an aim of translating response mechanisms and adaptation processes into risk assessment and protection methodologies. CNR-IPSP have coordinated and participated in many international projects (including ECLAIRE), and is expereienced in communication and contacts with stakeholders. Contribution to INMS includes provision of data for (i) the parameterisation of plant responses to nitrogen depsostion, water stress and ozone exposure, for plant species that respresent the major plant fucntional types in under-investigated areas of the globe (South America and Asia); and (ii) nitrogen-ozone-VOC interactions in a demonstration forest area in Mediterranean climate.
