Project number: COCOS – effects of Climatic extremes On eCOsystem Stability
Funded by: Horizon Europe – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA)
Host institution: Czech University of Life Sciences Prague
Principal Investigator at CZU: Manuele Bazzichetto
Project manager: Mgr. Emílie Trakalová/Mgr. Kateřina Hajkova
Budget: 150 438,72 EUR
This project aims at addressing these limitations and improving our fragmented knowledge on the relationship between extremes and stability. Combining cutting-edge analytical tools with extensive, and novel, global databases of time-series of in-situ vegetation and climatic extremes data, the project will analyse the relationship between stability and climatic anomalies, and how it varies in different ecosystems. Results will provide worldwide predictions of ecosystem-specific resistance and recovery to climatic extremes, and new approaches for anticipating critical transitions of ecosystem functions. These outputs will be essential for i) guiding future policies aimed at reducing the impact of extremes on society; ii) mitigating economic loss due to extremes in crucial sectors such as agriculture and food production; iii) providing new methods for investigating how climatic extremes affect ecosystem services.
