CLimate change IMpacts on Tree growth in a sub-tropical and temperate forest Ecosystem in south CHina – (CLIMTECH)

Research summary

The general objective of this study is to improve our understanding on short term regulation of tree growth and its allocation in subtropical conifer (Chinese red pine, Pinus massoniana) under the context of climate change. This study will be conducted at the Dinghushan Mountain Forest Reserve, which is located in south China and belongs to the South China Botanical Garden/Chinese Academy of Sciences. The project will be accomplished in collaboration with the Department of Physics, & Department of Forest Sciences of the University of Helsinki, Finland and South China Botanical Garden (SCBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, China.
