The research

AMAP joint research unit (French acronym UMR) is an interdisciplinary laboratory that conducts basic research on plants and plant communities with the aim of predicting ecosystems responses to environmental forcing, in terms of the distribution/conservation of species and biodiversity, crop production, carbon storage in plant biomass, protection of the environment and the provision of ecosystem services.
