Riccardo Valentini presents RL7
Reseach Line 7 (Impacts of Global Change on Ecosystems and the services they provide) is at the end of the process of CIRCE because its aim is evaluating the impact of climate change on several human activities like agriculture, forestry products and ecosystem services.
Some simulations already produced indicate that for the future climate change will impact differently on crops. For instance, grapevines will be affected but olive trees cultivation perhaps would be enhanced. These are some of the results of the RL7, as Riccardo Valentini, RL7 co-leader and scientist at the University of Tuscia (Viterbo, Italy), explained to Angela Simone (CIRCE Communication office).
