The goal of our group is to conduct research and research-oriented training to further the understanding of the functioning of the major tropical plant production systems in a changing environment. Environmental changes comprise the big challenges agricultural systems are increasingly facing in the future in the different regions in the tropics and sub-tropcis: water scarcity, soil nutrient depletion, soil loss, more severe adverse weather events, enhanced ozone concentrations and climate change.
