The group leads on a larger group that includes personnel from CREAF at a full time forming a single group including 45 people working as researchers, technicians, pre- and postdocs with intereses that embrace global and functional ecology, global change, climate change, volatile organic compounds, biosphere-atmosphere interactions and remote sensing. The group is recognised nationally (projects CONSOLIDER C 2005-6 and Consolider-Ingenio Montes CSD2008-00040, consolidated Group in Catalonia) and internationally for its participation in European projects (NITROEUROPE, GREENCYCLES (FP-7)) y other activities (eg CLIMMANI Res. Networking Prog. on Climate de la Eur.Sci.Found.; TRY initiative of IGBP database for a comprehensive functional traits of plants; European ACCENT network of excellence in the Biosphere-Atmosphere section).The GEU group have been awarded with an ERC Synergy Grant 2014-2020.
