Mission of the UMR ISPA
The mission of the UMR ISPA is to produce knowledge to improve the quantity and quality of plant production for agricultural and forestry ecosystems in an environmentally friendly manner, in a context of global change and diffuse pollution. The work developed aims to monitor, understand and model plant growth at different scales, analyze and model the response of ecosystems to global changes and understand the transfers of major elements, trace elements, molecules and particles and contaminants from the plant scale to the landscape scale. Our work focuses on both agricultural and silvicultural ecosystems; to achieve this, the unit relies on the coupling of biogeochemical and biophysical approaches and on modelling, integrating different scales of investigation.
