How important is the Root in the Role of Carbon Sink in Short Rotation Coppice Plantations?

Short Introductive summary

Alicia Fuertes graduated as Agricultural Engineer, specialized in Environmental Engineering at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, UPM. Motivated PhD student at Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, USC and a researcher at Forest Research Centre, INIA-CSIC, working on the project: “Optimization and modelling of sustainable lignocellulosic biomass production under climate change scenarios”. This work can contribute by providing knowledge in relation to the real carbon balance of poplar short rotation plantations under Mediterranean conditions, helping for a better quantification of belowground carbon content for these plantations.
