The Study and Restoration of Agroforest Systems research group presents LIFE project on forest resource management

Researcher Guillermo Palacios presents the LIFE Forest CO2 project in Lebanon Researcher Guillermo Palacios presents the LIFE Forest CO2 project in Lebanon

The conference was held in Lebanon in the framework of the VI Mediterranean Forest Week, in which the role played by Mediterranean forests in mitigating the effects of climate change was discussed. Attached to the Agrifood Campus of International Excellence ceiA3, the Study and Restoration of Agroforest Systems (RNM 360) research group of the University of Cordoba presented the LIFE Forest CO2 project in a FAO meeting on forest resource management.

Some of the effects of climate change stem from an imbalance in the carbon cycle. The ability of forest masses to absorb this carbon and fix it through photosynthesis could play an important role in mitigating the effects of this global change. This is one of the main lines of research of the LIFE Forest CO2 project, which has been presented at a conference on forest resource management organised by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

The VI Mediterranean Forest Week is a scientific conference in which the role played by Mediterranean forests in mitigating the effects of climate change is discussed. In addition to the forestry and ecological approach, this challenge is also addressed from other perspectives such as the adaptive capacity of individuals or the role of Mediterranean forests in the sectoral adaptation of climate change in areas such as water, agriculture and urban development.

Researcher Guillermo from the Study and Restoration of Agroforest Systems (RNM 360) research group presented the main progresses obtained in the framework of the project. These advances are related to the calculation of the CO2 fixation capacity of Mediterranean coniferous forest masses according to the implementation of forestry strategies, including soil storage, decomposing matter and aerial biomass.
