Physical Ecology

This is a series of papers on ecosystem phenology and ecocystem greening, a research I initiated while in sabbatical at the CSIRO - Canbera (Australia). Back in europe, i continued this research by focusing on mountain grasslands and their short-term and long-term response to climate change and meteorological extremes (heat wave). This research heavily relies on the use of remote sensing.
