How ENVIRON has contributed to understanding adaptation to global change

Ecosystems have a large capacity to adapt to environmental perturbations, but so far, most of the future projections of global change effects do not consider the adaptation responses. This is a key shortcoming of current model predictions as adaptation responses can alter global carbon and nitrogen cycle as well as vegetation capacity to emit volatile organic compounds and contribute to secondary organic aerosol formation, with potentially important implications for the extent and rate of global change.

Plants talk at Expo Milano 2015

The Estonian University of Life Sciences is represented in the Estonian pavilion at Expo Milano 2015, where visitors can see an exhibition about how plants communicate. Plants suffer from stress just like humans, but unlike humans they talk about it by emitting volatile molecules. The exhibition showcases research that is being done at the Department of Plant Physiology of the Estonian University of Life Sciences.
